Frozen Tuna Recalled for Hepatitis A Infection Risk

Frozen Tuna Recalled for Hepatitis A Infection Risk

June 2, 2017 — Frozen yellowfin tuna steaks and cubes were recalled by Hilo Fish Co. in California, Texas, and Oklahoma after testing positive for the Hepatitis A virus.

The recalled tuna was imported by Hilo Fish Co. of Hawaii and distributed on the mainland for restaurants, food service, and hotels. Some of it was meant to be eaten raw in ahi poke and sushi.

The recalled products include:

  • Frozen Yellowfin Tuna Steaks: 8-ounce steaks individually packaged in vacuum-sealed bags — Date Code: 627152, Lot number: 166623, and Expiration date: 2018-10-01.
  • Frozen Yellowfin Tuna Cubes: 15-pound boxes vacuum-packed — Date Code: 705342, Lot number: 173448, and Expiration Date: 2019-04-01.

The products were sourced from Sustainable Seafood Company in Vietnam and Santa Cruz Seafood in the Philippines. Last month, another recall was issued for frozen tuna cubes from Indonesia due to Hepatitis A.

No illnesses have been associated with the recall, but anyone who ate the potentially-contaminated tuna should seek medical attention. Infections with Hepatitis A may not show symptoms for up to 50 days.

The FDA provided the following list of establishments in Texas, Oklahoma, and California where the recalled tuna was distributed:
