Jensen Tuna Recalls Frozen Raw Ground Tuna For Salmonella

Jensen Tuna of Louisiana is recalling frozen raw ground tuna imported form JK Fish because it may be contaminated with Salmonella. A Salmonella Newport outbreak that has sickened at least 13 people is linked to this recalled product.

The product is individually packaged in clear plastic one-pound bags and is sold in white wax 20 pound boxes. This product is only sold as a wholesale case with twenty bags in each case. The lot numbers on the cases are z266, z271, and z272. The raw tuna was sold to wholesalers in Connecticut, Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, North Dakota, New York, and Washington. It was distributed from November 30, 2018 to March 15, 2019. Illness onset dates in the outbreak range from January 8, 2019 to March 20, 2019.

As of today, the ground tuna samples public health officials have tested have been negative for Salmonella. Traceback information showed that the restaurants where the ill persons ate were supplied with frozen raw ground tuna by Jensen Tuna.

Restaurants and retailers should not sell this product, and consumers should not eat it. If you are eating out and choose to eat sushi, ask where the raw ground tuna came from. The retailer should know. If they do not, do not eat these products.

The symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, abdominal and stomach pain, diarrhea that may be bloody, and a fever. People usually get sick 12 to 72 hours after exposure, and the illness usually lasts a few days to a week. Most people recover on their own, but some do get sick enough to be hospitalized. Two people who were sickened in this outbreak have been hospitalized.
