July 22, 2015 — Osamu Corporation is recalling frozen yellowfin tuna because it may be contaminated with Salmonella.
The recall involves Frozen Tuna Yellow Fin Chunk Meat (Lot #68568).
Osamu Corp. sold the tuna to AFC Corp. of Rancho Dominguez, California, sourced from one processing plant in Indonesia. AFC has sushi franchises nationwide in many different grocery stores and is also sold at sushi counters.
There have been two reports of illness associated with AFC sushi in Minnesota.
Minnesota Department of Health investigators found samples of Osamu Corp. tuna tested positive for Salmonella. At this time, Osamu does not believe the recalled products are still available for purchase because they were shipped between May 20-26.
On May 27, Osamu Corp. recalled frozen yellowfin tuna sold at over 100 sushi restaurants in Arizona and California. As of July 14, at least 60 people in 11 states were sickened with the outbreak strain of Salmonella. Eleven people were hospitalized and no deaths were reported. About half of the illnesses occurred in Southern California. Click here to read more.
Most healthy people who are infected with Salmonella recover without needing medical attention, but the illness can last for up to a week and cause serious diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain, fever, and vomiting.
In some cases, complications can become life-threatening:
“In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.”
