Mical Seafood Expands Tuna Recall For Scombroid Poisoning

Mical Seafood of Cooper City, Florida has voluntarily initiated an expanded recall of frozen, wild-caught yellowfin tuna products for potentially elevated levels of histamine, which can produce an allergic reaction called scombroid fish poisoning. The original recall reported that four people were sickened with scombroid fish poisoning; this new recall does not mention that and does not mention whether or not more people have been sickened.

The typical symptoms of scombroid fish poisoning are tingling or burning sensations in the mouth, facial swelling, rash, itchy skin and hives, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Most people recover in a few hours without medical treatment, but some may become seriously ill. If you have had serious symptoms, see your doctor.

These tuna products were wholesaled to customers in Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Jersey, Nevada, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin. All lots with production dates from 04/01/2019 to 05/31/2019 are recalled.

The recalled products are all Mical Seafood brand. They include Tuna Loins, Tuna Poke, Tuna Steaks, Tuna Ground Meat, and Tuna Saku in various sizes. These products were imported from Vietnam. You can see more details about the products at the FDA web site.

If you purchased any of these products, do not eat them. Throw them away in a sealed container in a secure garbage can, or take them back to the place of purchase for a refund. All stores should quarantine these products until they are returned to the supplier or to Mical Seafood.
