Kroger is recalling Yellowfin Tuna Steaks and Seasoned Yellowfin Tuna Steaks products with sell-by dates from August 29, 2019, to September 14, 2019, after being notified by the FDA of multiple scombroid poisoning cases linked to the consumption of tuna steaks purchased from Kroger retail locations.
Kroger is recalling all their tuna steaks products from their stores in AL, AR, GA, IL, IN, KS, KY, MI, MO, MS, NE, OH, SC, TN, VA, and WV. FDA also advises all consumers who purchased these items to not eat them and return them to the stores to a full refund.
According to the FDA, Scombroid poisoning is caused by eating fish that has not been properly refrigerated or preserved and therefore contains high levels of histamine. Symptoms usually develop within a few minutes to an hour after eating contaminated fish and they usually resemble an allergic reaction.
