And the outbreaks keep on coming! This current outbreak involves 20 states and the District of Columbia. So far 141 people have been sickened by the outbreak strain of Salmonella Bareilly and 21 of them have been hospitalized.
The outbreak has been linked to a yellow fin tuna product produced by Moon Marine. The product, known as Nakaochi Scrape, is tuna backmeat and is used in sushi products. Moon Marine has recalled its product. Right now, to be safe, consumers may want to avoid tuna sushi. CDC will continue to post updates as they are available and will continue to investigate the outbreak.
