TUNA RECALL EXPANDS
Remember that Yellow Fin Tuna Nakaochi Scrape Tuna that was recalled about a month ago because of Salmonella contamination, and scared so many of us who eat spicy tuna sushi or sashimi? That recall was put out by Moon Marine USA Corporation (also known as MMI) of Cupertino, California, a U.S. distributor of this imported tuna (see my post of April 15).
Well, it turns out that the scrape tuna came from India. Now, Moon Fishery (India) Pvt. Ltd., the manufacturer of this recalled tuna scrape, is also recalling its 22 pound cases of "Tuna Strips" (frozen tuna fish) that made it to the U.S.
No doubt about it, as the seafood we eat in America increasingly comes from countries where good food safety standards are difficult to enforce, it becomes less and less safe. The Safe Food Handbook has a whole chapter on this issue.
To your good health,
