California tuna products manufacturer, Moon Marine USA Corp., voluntarily recalls “Nakaochi Scrape” — the frozen raw yellowfin tuna product linked to the ongoing multistate outbreak of Salmonella Bareilly infections.
A yellowfin tuna product used to make the Japanese dishes sushi and sashimi sold at restaurants and grocery stores across the United States has been linked to an ongoing outbreak of salmonella that has so far caused more than 100 people in 20 states and the District of Columbia to fall ill, the federal government warns.
On April 13, the Food and Drug Administration said that 116 illnesses have been reported so far from 19 states, including 12 people who have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported. Many of the Americans who became ill reported eating raw tuna in sushi as “spicy tuna.”
