Rouses Markets (www.rouses.com) has issued a recall of some of its wild-caught yellow fin tuna steaks because of a food poisoning risk, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just announced.

The recalled wild-caught yellow fin tuna steaks are labeled as a product of USA with a UPC Code beginning with 208732 and were sold at Rouses Markets with Sell By dates between December 1, 2010 and January 27, 2011. These previously frozen tuna steaks are being recalled because of potential elevated levels of histamine. This recall does not impact any other fish or seafood sold by Rouses Markets.

High levels of histamine can produce an allergic reaction, called histamine fish poisoning or scromboid fish poisoning. Symptoms of Histamine Fish Poisoning generally appear within minutes to an hour after eating the affected fish. There have been two reported incidents by consumers.

The following are the most common Symptoms of Scromboid Fish Poisoning, also known as Histamine Fish Poisoning: Tingling or burning sensation in the mouth, facial swelling, rash, hives and itchy skin, nausea, Vomiting or diarrhea. The symptoms of this Foodborne Illness usually resolve within several hours without medical intervention; however, each individual may experience Food Poisoning differently; if symptoms are severe, an individual may need to seek medical attention for treatment with antihistamines.

If consumers have wild-caught yellow fin tuna steaks in their freezer with the indicated UPC code and Sell By dates, they may return the product to the store for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company by calling, toll-free, 1-800-688-5998, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Central Time.

The wild caught yellow fin tuna steaks were distributed to the two states where Rouses Markets operates: Louisiana and Mississippi. Rouses Market has removed the affected product from all seafood cases.

My name is Yolanda. When I sat down with them they treated me like family. I had Alex and Cathy. As long as I had them I still don't know Cathy's last name. They showed compassion and understanding. The young ladies in the front always had a smile. How I knew I had the right Law Firm is whenever I came to the office they knew my name. That meant EVERYTHING to me. Thank you for your kindness and love.
