Caviar distributed coast-to-coast recalled on botulism concerns

All cans of Grained Salmon Caviar 95g with a best by date of Oct. 7, 2020, have been recalled by AWERS on the possibility they might hit the consumer with botulism, one of the more lethal forms of food poisoning.

The AWERS-written, FDA-posted recall notice says lab analysis after review from the Canadian Food Inspection Authority “showed a lower than normal salt content, which can foster an anaerobic environment which is necessary to breed” the botulism bacteria.

But no actual botulism bacteria was found in the caviar.

The sockeye salmon caviar went to New York, California, Oregon and Washington, but also might have gone to other states, as well as Canada. The best by date is on the bottom of the can.

Consumers wishing a refund should call AWERS at 425-747-7866, Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Eastern time, or email awersinc1@gmail.com for directions on returning the caviar to AWERS or destroying it.
