Osamu Corporation of Gardena, CA, has recalled up to 1,800 cases of frozen ground tuna. The FDA found decomposition in several samples of the product and also found elevated histamine levels in samples taken from one retail location. Osamu Corporation is recalling the product since decomposed product may promote formation of histamine. Histamine consumed in food can cause reactions that exhibit symptoms of tingling or burning sensation in the mouth, facial swelling, rash, hives and itchy skin, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. However, individuals may experience symptoms differently. Persons developing these symptoms should seek medical attention.
The frozen ground tuna was shipped to three distributors from 08/18/11 to 09/08/11. The distributors removed the product from the marketplace and are destroying any remaining product. The three distributors are AFC Corporation, Red Shell Foods and Pacific Fresh Fish Company. Three illnesses due to elevated histamine levels have been reported to date, all involving sushi purchased at a single location. The cause of the elevated histamine levels found in the ground tuna at that location is presently unknown.
Customers who have purchased the frozen ground tuna from one of the distributors should return it to the distributor for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-310-327-6376.
