Washington, US-based Loki Fish Company recalls salmon products


Loki Fish Company of Seattle, Washington, the United States is recalling 4oz. packages of Keta Salmon Lox as it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with compromised immune systems.


The Keta Salmon Lox is kept in a plastic package on a coated board. It is labeled as "Wild Keta Lox, Loki Fish Co., Seattle, WA". There are no 'best by' dates on the package.


The Keta Salmon Lox was distributed through Cherry Sprout Produce in Portland, Oregon, and Central Co-op and Pacific Coast Harvest in Seattle. It was also sold at the University District and West Seattle Farmers Markets in Washington.


No illnesses have been reported to date.


The possibility of contamination was discovered during the US Food and Drug Administration's inspection at its co-packer in July 2021.


Loki submitted samples of the Keta Lox to Micro-Chem Laboratories for testing. Loki has ceased production, sales and distribution of keta lox.
