Jensen Tuna of Louisiana is voluntarily recalling frozen ground tuna imported from JK Fish because it may potentially be contaminated with Salmonella.
The frozen product, individually packaged in clear plastic one-pound bags, is sold in white wax 20 lb. boxes. The product is only sold as a wholesale case with twenty bags in each case. The lot numbers are z266, z271, and z272.
No other tuna products are impacted or part of this recall.
The product was sold to wholesalers in Connecticut, Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, North Dakota, New York, and Washington. These wholesalers further distribute the product to restaurants and retail locations. The product was distributed from Nov. 30, 2018 to March 15, 2019.
The voluntary recall is in response to the CDC and FDA’s investigation of 13 illnesses caused by Salmonella, confirmed to date. As of today, the ground tuna samples were found negative for Salmonella.
