Mical Seafood, Inc., of Cooper City, Florida, has expanded a tuna recall that began earlier this month to include more tuna products that may pose a risk of causing scombroid fish poisoning.
The recalled tuna products include Tuna Loins, Tuna Poke, Tuna Steaks, Tuna Ground Meat, and Tuna Saku (products of Vietnam).
The problem is that the tuna may have elevated levels of histamine, which can cause an allergic reaction called scombroid fish poisoning.
The tuna products were wholesaled to customers in 23 states, including AL, CA, FL, GA, ID, IL, IN, LA, MA, MI, MN, MO, MS, NC, NJ, NV, NY, PA, RI, TX, UT, VA and WI.
The recall involves all lots with production dates between 04/01/2019 and 05/31/2019.
The original recall on October 1 was issued after four people reported suffering scombroid fish poisoning.
The symptoms of scombroid fish poisoning typically appear within a few minutes or hours of eating contaminated fish. The symptoms may include a tingling or burning sensation in the mouth, facial swelling, rash, hives and itchy skin, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.
