Salmonella Outbreak Caused by Imported Smoked Salmon


Smoked Salmon Recalled After Salmonella Outbreak Announcement

At least 950 Dutch citizens, including 3 confirmed fatalities, and 100 Americans were diagnosed with Salmonella infections that could be traced to contaminated smoked salmon sold by Dutch fish producer Foppen, which announced a smoked salmon recall on September 28, 2012 after its products were identified as the source of the Salmonella outbreak. Froppen reached out to customers to ask them to remove the Salmonella-contaminated smoked salmon from shelves and remove it from storage fridges.

Salmonella Infection

Symptoms of Salmonella infection include diarrhea and abdominal cramps, often accompanied by fever of 100°F to 102°F (38°C to 39°C). Other symptoms may include bloody diarrhea, vomiting, headache and body aches.

Anyone who has eaten imported smoked salmon and suspects they may have a Salmonella infection should contact a local public health agency to report their illness.
