SFA revealed that listeria monocytogenes bacteria was found in this contaminated supply of salmon, saying,

“Consumers who have purchased Atlantic salmon from Norway are advised to cook the salmon thoroughly before consumption.”

“Those who are unsure if the salmon they purchased are affected can approach the retail outlet from which the purchase was made to check.”

The batch number of the affected salmon is#6751 and the plant number was F430, according to SFA.

According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that causes a serious infection called Listeriosis, the symptoms of which include fever, diarrhoea, and muscle aches. Listeriosis can be dangerous for pregnant women, as it can lead to miscarriages, premature birth, or a life-threatening infection of the newborn.

In light of the dangers of contracting Listeriosis, the public has been advised to good hygiene when handling their food items, like thoroughly washing hands after handling raw meat.

Meanwhile, it is unclear if this contamination has affected Norwegian salmon imported to Malaysia, so stay tuned for more updates on this developing story.
