On November 20, 2014, a New York City company recalled vacuum packs of smoked Nova salmon that were sold to Giant supermarkets in the Mid-Atlantic region because it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Acme Smoked Fish Corp. voluntarily recalled 564 pounds of Imported (Product of Denmark) Acme 4oz. (113g) smoked salmon with a lot code of L.05122014.

The company says the salmon was distributed to Giant Food of Landover, Maryland, which operates supermarkets in Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, and D.C.

Acme says the contamination was noted after testing by the Virginia Department of Agriculture, which found Listeria in one package.
