People who have bought the Vietnamese frozen fish Asian Pearl are asked to destroy it or return it to the store to avoid salmonella infection.

The frozen fish “Asian Pearl, Snakeskin Gourami,” often used in fish soup, is being withdrawn from the market by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority due to a salmonella discovery, newspaper Nationen reports.

The fish comes from Vietnam and is sold in 900-gram packages by the company Sletten Norge AS.

“This was discovered during a routine test, and the Norwegian Food Safety Authority was informed of the discovery. We have a sales ban on the goods in question,” Bala Venkatasmy in Sletten Norge told Nationen.

The salmonella virus is said to have been found in a 20-kilo shipment of fish that has been sold in two independent grocery stores in Oslo and Molde.

The importer asks people to destroy or return the product if they have bought it.
