“Bought Tuna steaks on sale 8/10/19 got scombroid fish food poisoning. Within minutes of eating lips felt swollen and entire mouth felt burnt. Face flushed, red and hot 30 minutes later. 2 hours later everything in my stomach was liquified and emptied. Hoping that’s all.
This is caused by tuna... not being kept at proper temperature. ”
“Twenty minutes after eating rare tuna, I came down with nausea, headache, weakness, an urgent bowel movement, blurred vision, chest rash, low blood pressure, and was red in my face. An ER doctor diagnosed this as Scombroid poisoning. The restaurant is not necessarily at fault; it could have been the... fish supplier. ”
