A Wasilla-based seafood distributor is recalling 6.5-ounce cans of smoked salmon which may contain botulism toxin.

The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation announced the recall from Smoked Alaska Seafoods, Inc., which includes both jars and cans of smoked silver salmon. The containers, which are marked with production code AL81111133, may contain botulism bacteria that can cause life-threatening illness.

“Consumers are warned not to use the product even if it does not look or smell spoiled,” DEC officials wrote. “The Smoked Silver Salmon was sold to distributors throughout the state of Alaska primarily in gift stores in the Anchorage and Fairbanks area. No illnesses have been reported to date.”

Similar recalls last year affected honey-filled pacifiers as well as salsa con queso.

More information on food recalls is available from DEC’s website, as well as the federal Food and Drug Administration.
