Moon Marine USA Corporation is voluntarily recalling its frozen raw yellowfin tuna product "Nakaochi Scrape." The product is taken from the back meat of tuna and looks like ground meat, but may be used in sushi, sashimi, or other raw dishes available in restaurants and grocery stores.
The product is associated with 116 cases of Salmonella Bareilly in at least 20 states and the District of Columbia. This is a particularly difficult product to recall because it may pass through several processors before reaching the public, often in the form of "spicy tuna." Restaurants and other establishments serving raw tuna should consult their suppliers.
Salmonella Bareilly causes diarrhea, fever, and abdominal pain. In some cases, the infection may get into the blood stream causing more severe illness. Salmonella is particularly dangerous for pregnant women, older adults, or anyone with a compromised immune system.

If you would like to discuss any potential claims you may have with an attorney, please call Corey Ann Finn at (502) 882-6000 or send her an e-mail at email@example.com.
