More than two tonnes of Rakfisk, a Norwegian fermented fish dish described as "exceedingly smelly" by the BBC, have been withdrawn from sale after listeria bacteria was found in one batch.
The product, Rakørret Filet, has been pulled from the shelves in branches of Coop, Rema, Norway Group and ICA, and the manufacturer, Wangensten, has asked people who have already purchased the product to dispose of it. 
 
Rakfish, made from salting and then fermenting fish, usually trout, for up to a year, is traditionally eaten with strong aquavit spirits in the winter months.
