Two seafood companies based out of Oregon have issued a nationwide recall over concerns some of their products may be contaminated with bacteria.

Bornstein Seafood, Inc. is voluntarily recalling its canned salmon, sardines, sturgeon, and tuna because it may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium that can cause life-threatening illness or death. The recalled items have codes starting with “OC” and were sold to retail and online customers through September 2015.

According to the FDA, consumers are warned not to use the product even if it does not look or smell spoiled. No illnesses have been reported yet, but the bacteria can cause a number of symptoms.

Affected production codes include any codes starting with “OC”. The code can be found on either the bottom or on top of the can. Products are packaged in metal cans with net weights ranging from 5.5 oz. to 6 oz. The following Bornstein products are being recalled:

  • Krooke’s Shanghaied Salmon
  • Fancy Pink Salmon
  • Pink Salmon
  • Smoked Pacific Sardines
  • Spicy Tomato Pacific Sardines
  • Sharyn’s “Think Pink” Salmon
  • Smoked Albacore Tuna Fillet
  • Smoked Sturgeon
