Relish Foods Recalls Frozen Tuna Loin for Possible Salmonella

Relish Foods is recalling some frozen tuna loins for possible Salmonella contamination. FDA testing revealed that the product has the potential to contain this pathogenic bacteria. You can see the huge list of retail locations where this product was sold at the FDA website.


This recalled product is Frozen Newport Brand Tuna Loins. It was distributed in Washington, Oregon, Northern California, Nevada, Idaho, and Arizona between 8/15/2017 and 9/25/2017, through food service operations, retail stores, and restaurants. It was sold as 5 to 8 pound, vacuum packed, frozen whole tuna loins packaged in 30 pound Newport brand master cases. Master cases are labeled with the production lot codes MTNT 0947C, MTNT 0957B, MTNT 0967A, and MTNT 0977D.

This product was also sold at these retail stores in several cities in those states: ¬†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 tuna was displayed at seafood departments in those stores. It was most likely sold as steak loins or pieces of loins on a tray with a clear plastic cover. It may have been sold in an unbranded form. The tuna may¬†also have been sold out of the fresh case and wrapped in “butcher paper” to the customer’s order.

If you aren’t sure whether or not you purchased this product, check with the store. Employees should be able to determine if they used the recalled product to prepare the tuna.

If you bought this product, do not eat it. Tuna is often served cooked to rare. In that case, the bacteria may not be killed and could make you sick. Throw the product away in a sealed container, or return it to the place of purchase for a refund. Wash your hands well after handling this product.
