Roland Foods, LLC Initiates A Voluntary Recall Of Roland Red Lumpfish Caviar And Roland Black Lumpfish Caviar Due To Possible Health Risk

NEW YORK, Sept. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Roland Foods, LLC of New York, New York is initiating a voluntary recall of its red and black lumpfish caviar products, which were manufactured at Ora ehf in Iceland, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium which can cause life-threatening illness or death.

Botulism, a potentially fatal form of food poisoning, can cause the following symptoms: general weakness, dizziness, double-vision and trouble with speaking or swallowing. Difficulty in breathing, weakness of other muscles, abdominal distension and constipation may also be common symptoms. People experiencing these problems should seek immediate medical attention.

The Red Lumpfish Caviar and Black Lumpfish Caviar, sold in glass jars, were distributed nationwide to retailers and foodservice distributors across the United States.  The UPC code is located on the back of the label, under the bar code.

The following products are subject to the voluntary recall:
