Listeria find forces firm to recall smoked salmon

The discovery of low levels of the listeria bacteria in a batch of smoked salmon has forced a food processor to recall the product from shops.
Burren Smokehouse of Lisdoonvarna, Co Clare, discovered listeria in a batch of smoked salmon with the code 1010x and a 'use-by' date of March 31 this year. It said no other batches are implicated.
There is a small risk that the bacteria could grow to harmful levels by the end of its shelf-life, particularly if incorrectly stored, according to a food alert posted on the Food Safety Authority of Ireland website.
The smoked salmon affected was in 100g, 200g and 500g packs.
