January 13, 2022 — Relish Foods Inc. has recalled Frozen Pacific Fusion® Tuna Steaks (10-oz.) due to elevated levels of histamine that pose a health risk.
The recall was issued after a consumer complaint resulted in the FDA testing the tuna steaks. Those tests identified high levels of histamines, which are chemicals that can trigger an allergic reaction called scombroid fish poisoning.
The symptoms can include tingling or burning sensation in the mouth, facial swelling, rash, hives and itchy skin, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. The symptoms can appear within minutes to several hours.
The recalled tuna steaks were distributed in Northern California and made for sale at Save Mart Supermarkets and Lucky Stores from October 6th, 2021 potentially up to December 27th, 2021
The product was sold to consumers as frozen 10-oz tuna steaks. The tuna steaks sold individually were labeled with the Production Date: July 2021, Best Before: July 2023 and Production Code R11G2821D22A D2091A.
This information can be found on the packaging of the individual tuna steaks in the top right corner.
