Tuna Recalled in Multistate Salmonella Outbreak

April 16, 2019 – At least 13 people in 7 states have been diagnosed with a salmonella infection, or salmonellosis, linked to frozen raw ground tuna produced by Jensen Tuna Inc., the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned on Tuesday.

The recall affects 3 lots of individually packaged 1-pound bags and 20-pound boxes of Jensen Tuna Inc.’s frozen raw ground tuna, CDC said. Lot numbers of the recalled products are z266, z271, and z272.

What’s the problem?

The recalled tuna should not be sold or served by stores or restaurants, CDC warned.

“Consumers who order sushi made with raw tuna, including ‘spicy tuna,’ should ask the restaurant or grocery store if the tuna is supplied by Jensen Tuna,” the agency said. “If you are not sure if the tuna has been recalled, do not eat it.”

Salmonella Symptoms

The incubation period for salmonella bacteria ranges anywhere from 2 hours to several days. Most salmonella infections can be classified as stomach flu (gastroenteritis).

Signs and symptoms of salmonellosis include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Headache
  • Blood in the stool

In most otherwise healthy adults, these symptoms tend to taper off within a week without medical intervention. Those at an increased risk for severe infections include babies, old folks, and people who have impaired immune systems.
