 The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has issued a health hazard alert, warning the public not to consume the salted and cured fish product (fesikh), as it may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum. Toxins produced by this bacteria may cause botulism, a life-threatening illness.

 

The affected product, whole fesikh mullet, was sold in clear vacuum-packaged bags of varying count and weight, bearing no code or date information.

This product was sold from Lotus Catering and Fine Food, 1960 Lawrence Ave. E, Toronto, Ontario, on or before 17 April 2012.

There have been three reported illnesses associated with the consumption of this product.

Food contaminated with Clostridium botulinum toxin may lead to nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dizziness, headache, double vision, dry throat, respiratory failure and paralysis. In severe cases of illness, it may cause death.
