Frozen tuna steaks recalled due to risk of poisoning by scombroid fish
On December 28, 2021, Relish Foods Inc. recalled frozen Pacific Fusion® Tuna Steaks (10 oz) which may cause allergic reactions.
The recall was announced after a consumer complaint prompted the FDA to test the tuna.
The FDA has found high levels of histamines, which are chemicals that can trigger an allergic reaction called scombroid fish poisoning.
Symptoms of scombroid fish poisoning may appear minutes to hours after eating the affected fish. These symptoms may include “tingling or burning sensation in the mouth, facial swelling, rash, hives and itchy skin, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea,” according to the FDA.
Tuna steaks sold individually were labeled with production date: July 2021 and best before date: July 2023 and production code R11G2821D22A D2091A. This information is printed on the packaging in the upper right corner.
The recalled tuna steaks were distributed in Northern California and went on sale at Save Mart supermarkets and Lucky Stores from October 6, 2021, potentially until December 27, 2021.
For more information, consumers may contact the company at 1-888-301-0881, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (PDT).
