Superior Foods have voluntarily recalled 487 pounds of smoked salmon spreads.

The company, which is located in Kentwood, Michigan, is recalling the spreads that were produced on March 26, 2018.

The products in question could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The contaminant was identified through routine inspection and testing.

If you are healthy, but have consumed some of the smoked salmon spreads, you may experience short-term symptoms like fever, headaches, and nausea.

People experiencing any issues should seek immediate medical attention to be safe.
