The FDA has determined that salt-cured, dried, or fermented un-eviscerated fish larger than 5 inches have been linked to outbreaks of botulism poisoning in humans. Because some IcelandicPlus Capelins are larger than 5 inches long, there is a possible health risk. To date there have been no reported illnesses or positive tests.

Distributors, retailers and consumers who have purchased the above products can return them to the purchase location for a refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1857-246-9559. Monday – Friday 8am – 5pm EST.
