Food Recalls: Yellowfin Tuna, Soups, Wraps and Salads

Alfa International Seafood Yellowfin Tuna

Alfa International Seafood’s yellowfin tuna steak products have been recalled due to the risk of food poisoning. Several people who consumed the products developed symptoms of scombroid fish poisoning. Scombroid poisoning occurs when people eat fish that contain higher than normal levels of histamine.

If fish aren’t refrigerated at an appropriate temperature, then bacteria start to break down the flesh. This process raises histamine levels.

The recalled yellowfish tuna steak products were sold in Kroger grocery stores and chains in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, Nebraska, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.

Symptoms of scombroid fish poisoning resemble an allergic reaction, including tingling in the mouth, rash, itchy skin and facial swelling. To date, five people have gotten sick from eating the recalled tuna steaks.
