Risk of Food Poisoning Prompts Recall of Bright Water Buffalo Krab Dip Products


Washington, DC: Bright Water Seafood is recalling its 7 ounce packages of Buffalo Krab Dip and 7 ounce packages of Southwest Krab Dip because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, 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.

The recalled Dips & Spreads were distributed in retail stores in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, North Georgia and Virginia.

The Bright Water Buffalo Krab Dip product comes in a 7 ounce, clear plastic container marked with an UPC code 8 1971100001 4 and with an expiration date of 12/21/2010 stamped on the side. The Bright Water Southwest Krab Dip comes in a 7 ounce, clear plastic container marked with an UPC code 8 1971100002 1 and with an expiration date of 12/29/2010 stamped on the side.

The potential for contamination was noted after routine testing by the company revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in 7 ounce container.

The production of the product has been suspended while the Company, GA Department of Agriculture and US FDA continue to investigate the source of the problem.
