Scombroid poisoning can occur when consuming improperly preserved fish. The toxin acts as a histamine and is produced following the growth of bacteria in improperly stored fish. There’s no sure-fire way of testing the presence of Scombroid in fish. Fish containing scombroid toxin may taste peppery or metallic.

“I was poisoned at this restaurant, 3 weeks ago.
I was taken for lunch by two business colleagues both long-standing customers.
After looking at the menu, I was informed that the Lampuki fish is a specialty of Malta. Fatefully, I ordered Lampuki.
After lunch, I returned to my hotel room ne... arby and within minutes of arrival began to feel unwell. My head was turning and I felt dizzy and lay on the bed gasping for breath.
I tried to get up but just couldn’t. Waves of nausea descended and my heart was beating fast, which I later discovered is a potentially life threatening condition, called tachycardia.
Eventually and with great difficulty, I managed to reach for the bedside phone and called for help. Ten minutes later, I was in an ambulance headed to the Emergency Room at the Mater Dei hospital.
The doctor in charge of my case, on hearing that I had eaten Lampuki fish, diagnosed Scombroid poisoning.
Scombroid is a not uncommon cause of food poisoning that results from the inferior handling and preparation of raw fish such as the Lampuki.
I was injected with an antihistamine and placed on a drip.
Within a few hours I was released from hospital still feeling shaken and rotten. I returned to my hotel and slept for the next 14 hours. On waking I still felt shaky.
Although I have recovered physically, I still suffer nightmares as a result of the memories of panic induced by the Scombroid poisoning.
I have reported this matter to them and requested compensation.
I supplied them with a medical report but I have heard nothing positive despite writing to them several times. I have not even received an apology.
Draw your own conclusion before choosing to dine there. ”

The Fresh Market, Good & Gather and more Organic Basil - recalled due to possible Cyclospora contamination
November 24, 2020 6:01 PM
“Company name: Shenandoah Growers, Inc
Brand name: The Fresh Market, Good & Gather and more
Product recalled: Organic Basil
Reason of the recall: Possible Cyclospora contamination
FDA Recall date: November 24, 2020
Recall details: Shenandoah Growers, Inc (Harrisonburg, VA) out of an abundance of... caution, has issued a limited, voluntary recall of approximately 15,000 units in select packages, due to a possible health risk from Cyclospora. These were packed under branded and private label fresh cut organic certified basil clamshells at its Jefferson, GA facility and Harrisonburg, VA facility with the following lot codes, all with the country of origin of Colombia.
Recalled products were distributed to select retail stores between 10/20/2020 and 10/30/2020 in various states including Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Washington DC. Click on the link below to see the full list of affected lot codes.
The Shenandoah Growers recall includes only those clamshells of certified organic basil clearly marked with the affected lot codes listed above. The lot code can be found printed on each clamshell. This precautionary recall notification is being issued due to an isolated instance in which a package pulled by the Florida Department of Agriculture on 11/2/2020 from a retail store in Florida indicated the potential presence of Cyclospora.
Affected Shenandoah Growers customers have been notified of the recall and instructed to immediately remove and discard recalled products from all store shelves, distribution and other inventories to ensure they are no longer available for sale or consumption. These products were harvested and packed nearly 4 weeks ago and should no longer be in commerce.
No other Shenandoah Growers products are subject to recall, and the company has no knowledge of any illness reported or related to this product. Consumers who may have a recalled basil product should discard it immediately and not eat it. Consumers with questions, or to obtain refunds, may contact the Shenandoah Growers Consumer Response Center at 844-896-6939 Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm Eastern time.
