New York State Agriculture Commissioner Nathan L. Rudgers announced uneviscerated processed fish has been voluntarily recalled by its distributor Roman Enterprises & Sons, 27 Story Street, Brooklyn, New York. This product, labeled in Russian, was discovered by Department food inspectors during an inspection of a large public warehouse facility in Brooklyn, New York. Food samples analyzed at the New York State Food Laboratory confirmed that the fish had not been eviscerated prior to processing. The product may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum spores which can cause Botulism, a serious and potentially fatal food-borne illness. Symptoms of Botulism include blurred vision, general weakness, poor reflexes, difficulty swallowing and respiratory paralysis. According to the distributor, the product was imported into the United States by BP International. It is sold to grocery stores in large cardboard boxes that weight approximately 20 pounds. Distribution records indicate the product has been sold to grocery stores in the Metropolitan New York City area, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.
