The presence of Listeria monocytogenes can lead to listeriosis. It’s not often a concern for young and healthy individuals, but young children, the elderly, or those with weakened immune systems are more likely to suffer from major complications. For the most susceptible, serious and sometimes fatal infections are not unheard of.
The frozen and package sealed lox was sold under various name brands and shipped to distributors in Alaska, California, Oregon, and Washington. So far, no illnesses have been reported related to this recall.
