Many salmon products are subject to voluntary recalls at this time. These recalls mainly concern slices of smoked salmon, a festive dish that many enjoy. France is a country in which the tradition of salmon smoking dates back to ancient history, when salmon were still found in many streams and rivers in France, particularly in the southwestern region of the country.
Nowadays, the vast majority of the salmon we consume comes from farming, which is very often intensive. It has therefore lost its vigor and therefore its taste. At the time when smoked salmon was making its debut, this way of preparing it was simply the result of an effort to preserve it: before the days of today’s high-performance fridges, smoking your food allowed it to be preserved longer, as reports franceinfo.
In this case, it should not be consumed. Indeed, these slices of smoked salmon are recalled because of the suspicion of the presence of listeria monocytogenes. If you ingest it inadvertently, the consequences can be serious, especially for pregnant or immunocompromised people.
If you have purchased smoked salmon, make sure it is not contaminated and, if so, take it back to the supermarket as soon as possible. Here are the references to identify:
