Scombroid poisoning can occur when consuming improperly preserved fish. The scombroid toxin has been reported in amberjack, bluefish, albacore, Australian salmon, herring, anchovy, mackerel, saury, herring, needlefish. Mahi-mahi, yellowfin tuna, sardine, wahoo, skipjack, and kahawai may also pass scombroid. The toxin acts as histamine and is produced following the growth of bacteria in improperly stored fish. While some people may not react to the toxin, others do. There’s no sure-fire way of testing the presence of Scombroid in fish. The toxin is not killed by cooking and remains a threat in the fish tissues. Fish containing scombroid toxin may taste peppery or metallic.
Scombroid is a fast-acting poisoning, causing symptoms typically after 1 hour of ingestion. Symptoms include diarrhea, vomiting, headache, abdominal pains, flushing, and nausea. Sufferers may also report oral burning sensation, hives, itching, fever, and irregular heartbeat. Severe scombroid poisoning may cause wheezing, racing heart, and reduced blood pressure. Consult your physician if you experience unusually prolonged or severe symptoms.

FDA Recall date: February 22, 2021

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that products containing almond and cashew was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of the above-mentioned allergens.

- Cacao Mocha. Use-By Date: 3/11/2021. UPC Item Code 813377021093. Product Size: 16oz. Quantity: 278.
