The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall of several batches of yellowfin tuna steaks sold at Kroger's counters across different states following reports of scombroid poisoning.
Consumers are advised not to consume the Kroger tuna sold raw at the seafood counter or the in-store prepared tuna steaks dated between Aug. 29 and Sept. 14.
Kroger agreed to recall all the products from their stores as well as notify any customer that purchased the product to either throw it away or return it to the retailer.
The FDA warned against stores in the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, Nebraska, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia.
Scombroid poisoning is caused by eating under-refrigerated fish with high levels of histamine and mostly common among fish that naturally have high levels of amino acid histidine.
