Relish Foods Inc. of Culver City, California has recalled “Frozen Newport® Tuna Loins” after it tested positive for Salmonella, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

No illnesses have been reported, but Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause serious and sometimes fatal food poisoning. The symptoms may include fever, diarrhea, nausea, and abdominal pain.

The frozen yellowfin tuna was sold in the seafood department of retailers in Washington, Oregon, Northern California, Nevada, Idaho, and Arizona between August 15, 2017 and September 25, 2017.

The grocery stores where it was distributed include Basha’s, Randall’s Fine Meats, Yokes Fresh Market, CalMart, Raley’s, Concord Produce Market, Bel Air Market and Speedy Market and Nob Hill.

The frozen tuna loins were sold as “tuna steak loins” or pieces of tuna on a tray with a clear plastic-wrap cover. It may have also been sold fresh out of the seafood department and wrapped in “butcher paper” to each customer’s order.

The Master boxes are labeled with the production lot codes of MTNT 0947C, MTNT 0957B, MTNT 0967A, and MTNT 0977D.

The FDA also warns consumers about serious complications of Salmonella:

“In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.”

The product was distributed to the following stores and it may have been sold without obvious brand information:
