FDA: Norwegian smoker lacks adequate plan to control contaminants

FDA sent warning letter to Norwegian seafood processing facility.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sent a warning letter to Johnny Remo, managing director of Norwegian seafood processing facility Brodr Remo A.S.

During August and September inspections of the facility, the FDA found seafood Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) violations regarding the firm's vacuum packaged cold smoked salmon and trout.

The FDA said measures in place are not adequate to control Staphylococcus aureus and Clostridium botulinum toxin formation.
