Boiled Horse Mackerel is being recalled today because it may be tainted with clostridium botulinum, the bacteria that causes botulism.

The Boiled Horse Mackerel  was sold by Bao Ding  Seafood of New York, NY.  The product was sold in New York State, and the potential botulism problem was discovered by the New York State Dept. of Agriculture and Market food inspector during a routine inspection.  Subsequent analysis of the product by food lab personnel confirmed the fish was not eviscerated prior to processing.

The Boiled Horse Mackerel subject to this recall was packaged in a vacuum packed plastic bag, net weight 450g.  

Consumers who have this Boiled Horse Mackerel are advised not to eat it, but should return it to the place of purchase. No illnesses have been associated with this product.
