Epicureans with an eastern preference will have to look elsewhere in the short-term future. At least two-hundred cases have been reported of salmonella poisoning, all along the East Coast, and all originating from a company’s now recalled “tuna scrape,” reports NBC 10 Philadelphia.
Tuna scrape, which is tuna scraped off of the bones and ground up, is at fault in all of the known cases so far. So far, all of the known cases have been in the eastern half of the United States. The company behind the fishy fish, Moon Marine USA Corp., has recalled 300 tons of tuna. As of now, sushi restaurants and consumers should be extra-cautious, as the fish may also have been sold wholesale and may not be labeled with the company’s name, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.
And some question us when we refuse to eat sushi or other raw fish.
