Two salmon products are being recalled because they may contain listeria.

The New Zealand King Salmon Co. Ltd has recalled a specific batch of its Southern Ocean brand New Zealand King Salmon Smoked Pieces and Regal Marlborough King Salmon brand Cold Smoked Salmon which may contain Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.

The affected batch is coded with M362D or M362N. The recall did not apply to any other Regal Marlborough or Southern Ocean brand products.

Consumers are being asked to check batch numbers and not consume the affected salmon, which was sold 200g and 500g vacuum packs.

The recall was a precautionary measure after test results for a single sample in the affected batch suggested it contained listeria. Read more here.
