Whole Foods recalls yellow-fin tuna steaks

Whole Foods Market Monday announced it is recalling frozen yellowfin tuna steaks with best-by dates of Dec. 5, 2010, because they could have elevated levels of histamine.

High levels of histamine can cause an allergic reaction called scombroid poisoning. Symptoms may include tingling or burning sensation in the mouth, facial swelling, rash, hives and itchy skin, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. Two incidents have been reported.

The fish was sold in New York State, more than two dozen other states and the District of Columbia. Whole Foods has locations in Jericho, Manhasset and Lake Grove.

For more information consumers can call 512-542-0656.
