Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Raw, Frozen Tuna
St. Paul, MN (KROC-AM News) - The Minnesota Department of Health says two Minnesotans recently became ill from salmonella infections after eating frozen raw tuna.
The Minnesota cases, which both involve adults in the 30's in the Twin Cities area who became ill in late June, are part of a larger national outbreak.
Investigators have linked the salmonella to spicy tuna rolls packaged in frozen, vacuum sealed bags without a brand or other name. The product was distributed by the Osamu Corporation of Gardena California. Officials say retail store should not sell and consumer should not eat the tuna, which bear the lot number 68568 and country of origin of Indonesia.
The investigation in Minnesota and nationally is ongoing.
