Smoked Salmon (Lox) Emergency

For those of you less informed people, Lox is the Jewish name for smoked salmon.  I do not know the origin of the word Lox.  I do know that a bagel topped with cream cheese and Lox is a heavenly dish.

On our recent trip to Paris (this past August) we did not go to the Moulin Rouge (way to expensive to watch the can-can).  One young lady on the tour, who did go to the show, complained the next day that they served raw smoked salmon for dinner.  I informed her that smoked salmon is raw and is very expensive.  By the pound smoked salmon costs at least $20.00 USD in Los Angeles.

Now a serious smoked salmon (Lox) emergency has befallen us all.  The AP reports “Smoked salmon tainted with salmonella bacteria has sickened hundreds of people in the Netherlands and the United States, sparking a major recall, health authorities said Tuesday.”

What will Lox cost at Jerry’s Famous Deli or Brent’s with this recall?  I won’t be surprised if the cost rises to $50.00 USD a pound.
