In a press statement, Moon Fishery Pvt Ltd, in conjunction with and in compliance with the standards and regulations of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), announced the voluntary food safety recall of “Tuna Strips” Product of India AA or AAA Grade because of the possibility that this product has been contaminated with Salmonella.
The recall applies to all 22-pound cases of “Tuna Strips” Product of India AA or AAA Grade that were shipped to four wholesalers in Georgia, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York. This recall was initiated out of an abundance of caution when the FDA alerted the company to the possible contamination after a test sample from a lot, not yet in distribution, tested positive for Salmonella. Because the four wholesalers could have potentially broken the cases into smaller portions for further distribution, production of this product has been suspended until the company and the FDA have completed their investigation into the scope of this issue. The products could be identified by their original white cardboard packaging with black writing, naming the importer Moon Marine USA Corporation and inner contents Tuna Strips AA or AAA. There is no further labeling on the vacuum-wrapped packages held within. To date, no illnesses have been reported in relation to this recall.
Distributors and restaurants are being urged to contact their suppliers to determine whether any Tuna Strips in their possession are included in this recall.
