Frozen Yellow Fin Tuna Chunk Meat Recalled – Illnesses

Posted on July 23, 2015 by


Osamu Corporation of Gardena, CA is recalling Frozen Yellow Fin Tuna Chunk Meat (Lot #68568) sold to AFC Corporation of Rancho Dominquez, CA sourced from one processing plant in Indonesia because the Minnesota Department of Health Investigators found samples of this product from one retail location in Minnesota to be contaminated with Salmonella. 

There have been two reports of illness to date associated with exposure to AFC sushi in Minnesota.

The Frozen Tuna Yellow Fin Chunk Meat (Lot #68568) was shipped to AFC from 05/20/15 to 05/26/15. AFC has removed the product from the marketplace and is destroying any remaining product it has.

AFC has sushi franchises nationwide in many different grocery stores and it is sold from sushi counters.

Consumers concerned about whether the sushi they purchased may contain the recalled tuna product should check with the store where they purchased the sushi. That store will be able to determine if it used the recalled product to prepare the sushi. At this time Osamu does not believe that the recalled product or sushi made with the recalled product is available for purchase by consumers.

An example of an AFC Sushi label used to seal rectangular plastic trays with clear lids is attached to the end of this release.

Customers who have purchased the Frozen Tuna Yellow Fin Chunk Meat (Lot #68568) are urged to return it to the distributor for a full refund.  Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-310-849-8881, Mondays through Fridays, 8 A.M. to 5 P.M. (PDT).
