Frozen tuna recalled in several states for Salmonella risk By Kelsey M. Mackin

Health officials have issued a warning about a multi-state salmonella outbreak linked to raw, frozen tuna supplied by Jensen Tuna.

"Jensen Tuna distributed product to all the states where ill people were reported, but recalled product might have been redistributed to additional states", the CDC said.

The CDC says 13 people in seven states, including NY and CT, have gotten sick from eating the fish. It had been sold to distributors in Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, New York, North Dakota and Washington. Two people in this outbreak have been hospitalized as a result of their illness. "Consumers with concerns should ask their restaurants and retailers whether the tuna dish they are purchasing contained the recalled ground tuna".

Rioting Huguenots, or French Protestants, vandalised parts of the building they believed to be idolatrous in the mid-16th century. The fire collapsed the cathedral's spire and spread to one of its landmark rectangular towers. "We will rebuild it together".

"Restaurants and retailers should check with their suppliers and not sell or serve recalled frozen ground tuna and should wash and sanitize locations where recalled ground tuna was stored", the recall notice posted to the FDA website said. "If you are not sure if the tuna has been recalled, do not eat it", the CDC said.

Symptoms of salmonella include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
