Dave’s Marketplace Recalling Frozen Tuna Steaks

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) is advising consumers that Dave’s
Marketplace is recalling 10oz Frozen Tuna King tuna steaks sold at the retailer on
or after March 23, 2017.

This lot of frozen tuna steaks is being recalled as a result of elevated histamine
levels that were detected during routine surveillance sampling at RIDOH’s State
Health Laboratories.

When consumed in food, histamine can result in symptoms including tingling or
burning in the mouth, facial swelling, rashes, hives and itchy skin, nausea,
vomiting or diarrhea. Anyone experiencing these symptoms after consuming frozen Tuna
King tuna steaks from Dave’s Marketplace should seek medical attention. Young
children, elderly people, individuals who are immunocompromised, and pregnant women
are particularly susceptible to foodborne illness. At this time, there have not been
any reports of illnesses associated with this recall.

The Tuna King tuna steaks are frozen and individually wrapped. They are a
wild-caught product from Vietnam. Only frozen tuna steaks purchased at Dave’s
Marketplace on or after March 23, 2017 are being recalled. No other products are
involved. Consumers who purchased this product can return it for a full refund.
