Josephson’s Smokehouse Recalls Nine Canned Seafood products

Posted on October 28, 2015 by


Josephson’s Smokehouse of Astoria, Oregon is recalling nine canned seafood products (salmon, sturgeon and tuna) it received from Skipanon Brand Seafood of Warrenton, Oregon with any codes starting with “OC” because it has the potential to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum.

The Josephson recall is affected by the recall initiated by Skipanon Brand Seafoods LLC following an FDA inspection that turned up a lack of documentation and potentially under-processed products.

All products were sold by Josephson’s to consumers from our one retail store located in Astoria and to mail order customers through our webstore (www.josephsons.comdisclaimer icon) and telephone orders.

All mail order sales were to individual customers and were not for resale. Josephson’s through their in-house invoicing and Yahoo shopping webstore invoicing system has identified all recipients of the recalled products. These recipients are being contacted by email, telephone and mail with the recall information. In addition the recall information is published on our website and is displayed in placards in our retail store.

The last date of distribution of recalled products was September 2015. Affected production codes include any codes starting with “OC”. The code can be found on either the bottom or on top of the can. Recalled products are packaged in metal cans with net weight 5.5 oz., 7.0 oz., and 7.5 oz.
