Moon Fishery (India) Pvt. Ltd. Recalls Its "Tuna Strips" Product Of India "AA" Or "AAA" Grade Because Of Possible Health Risk
Moon India became aware of the problem after the FDA sampled tuna strips from a lot not yet in distribution. However as a cautionary measure Moon India agreed to recall tuna strips that were already distributed, none of which is from the suspect lot sampled by FDA. Distribution of these AA or AAA Grade Tuna Strips Product of India is limited to 4 wholesalers: one in Georgia, one in Massachusetts, one in New Jersey and one in New York. The wholesalers may have broken the shipments into smaller lots for further distribution. The frozen raw yellow fin tuna product was originally packaged in white boxes with black writing naming the importer as Moon Marine USA Corporation, a separate and independent company, and identifying the contents as Tuna Strips AA or AAA, Product of India. The boxes contain several vacuum-wrapped packages with no further labeling. Distribution of the product has been suspended while FDA and the company continue their investigation as to the scope of the problem.
