Frozen Tuna Recalled For Hepatitis A Contamination

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is overseeing a massive recall of frozen tuna potentially contaminated with Hepatitis A. The recall covers products sold to restaurants in Texas, Oklahoma, and California.

Details of the Frozen Tuna Recall

According to CNN, the recalled products are 8-ounce tuna steaks with an expiration date of October 1, 2018 and individual vacuum packed 15-pound frozen tuna cubes with an expiration date of April 1, 2019.

The FDA reports that the frozen tuna was sourced from Sustainable Seafood Company in Vietnam and Santa Cruz Seafood Inc. in the Philippines and was imported by Hawaii-based Hilo Fish Company.

While no illness have been reported to the FDA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that Hepatitis A is highly contagious and symptoms may not be evident for 15 to 50 days if an individual displays symptoms at all.

Some symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Joint pain
  • Jaundice
