Something is up.  This may well be the sixth salmon recall due to Listeria monocytogenes in the last few months.  Is it an environmental problem?  Processing?

GIANT Food Stores, LLC and MARTIN’S Food Markets, following a recall by Ocean Beauty Seafoods LLC, announced it removed from sale several varieties of smoked salmon due to possible contamination by Listeria monocytogenes.

The following products are included in this recall:
