ALBANY, N.Y., July 26 (UPI) -- Zip International Group LLC is recalling Herring Fillet in Oil due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination, company officials say.

The recalled herring fillet in oil -- FOSFOREL, ATLANTIKA -- 400 gram, or 14 ounces, has plastic packaging and has best by dates of May 5 and July 17 and a UPC: 4607095500208. The best by date is located on the round side of the packaging and was sold to retail grocery stores in New York state beginning on March 15 and ending on May 24. The fish is a product of Russia.

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York state Department of Agriculture & Markets food inspectors. An analysis of the product by food laboratory personnel found the product to be positive for Listeria monocytogenes.

No illnesses have been reported to date. Consumers who have purchased herring fillet in oil -- FOSFOREL, ATLANTIKA -- should not consume it, but should return it to the place of purchase, health officials said

Consumers with questions may contact the company at (732) 225-3600 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. EDT Monday-Friday.

Listeria is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women, health officials said.
