On December 28, 2021, Relish Foods Inc. recalled frozen Pacific Fusion® tuna steaks (10-oz.) that may cause allergic reactions.
The recall was announced after a consumer complaint prompted the FDA to test the tuna.
The FDA found high levels of histamines, which are chemicals that can trigger an allergic reaction called scombroid fish poisoning.
The symptoms of scombroid fish poisoning can appear within minutes to hours of eating the affected fish. Those 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 that were sold individually were labeled with Production Date: July 2021 and Best Before: July 2023 and Production Code R11G2821D22A D2091A. This information is printed on the packaging in the top right corner.
The recalled tuna steaks were distributed in Northern California and made for sale at Save Mart Supermarkets and Lucky Stores from October 6th, 2021 potentially up to December 27th, 2021.
