A California company has recalled several thousand pounds of frozen capelin because of fears the fish is contaminated with bacteria that could cause life-threatening botulism.
JFC International Inc. of Los Angeles said consumers should not eat the product even if it doesn't look or smell spoiled. The recall affects about 540 cartons of capelin, averaging 8 pounds apiece, that were sold nationwide in restaurants and retail stores between September and December.
Botulism is a potentially fatal form of food poisoning. The company said no illnesses have been reported.
The frozen capelin came from Vietnam and says "Shishamo 'Imura'" on the wrapped Styrofoam tray.
For more information, contact the company at 800-633-1004.
