LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A Los Angeles seafood company is voluntarily recalling its smoked and dry Vobla fish because it may be contaminated with a bacteria that can cause botulism.

LA Star Seafood Co., Inc. said in a release Wednesday that it is recalling 20lb bulk boxes of smoked and dry fish.

The company says the boxes are not vacuum-packed, have no lot numbers and no expiration dates.

The company says the fish are being recalled because they were improperly eviscerated, leaving them vulnerable to the botulism bacteria.

Customers who purchased the fish between Feb. 28 and April 23 are urged to destroy or return the products.

The products were distributed and sold in Utah, Oregon, Colorado and California.

Botulism poisoning is potentially life threatening and can cause blurred vision and respiratory paralysis.
