Fish Food Poisoning


The most common fish food poisonings are scombroid and ciguatera. Scombroid is caused by improperly handling of fish producing histamine-releasing bacteria. Symptoms can occur as quickly as 15 mins. Ciguatera is common with tropical and sub-tropical fish and typically causes hot-cold reversal.

Garlic Shrimp Poke - recalled due to potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes

Type: Recall
“Company name: Norpac Fisheries Export
Brand name: Garlic Shrimp Poke
Product recalled: Garlic Shrimp Poke
Reason of the recall: Potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes
FDA Recall date: June 29, 2020
Recall details: Norpac Fisheries Export is recalling all fresh shrimp poke distributed in the Hawaiian Island between May... See More 11, 2020 and June 25, 2020 because it has potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. No illnesses have been reported to date

Product was distributed in Hawaii on The Big Island, Maui, Oahu, and Kauai through its retail customers, specifically Safeway Stores. Any fresh shrimp poke purchased from their stores from May 11th, through June 25, 2020 would be potentially contaminated. Shrimp poke is distributed as pre-mixed in plastic pouches and go to service counter and then dishes out in various weight increments into a “deli cup”.

We became aware of this problem during our routine Food Safety monitoring procedures, as we perform laboratory analysis of our work areas, equipment, surfaces, drains, raw materials and completed product. As a result of our routine random product and materials testing, we tested the shrimp used to make the shrimp poke, by having a sample sent to an independent lab for analysis. The results were received June 25, 2020 indicating a positive result for Listeria monocytogenes.

We are proceeding under the cautious assumption that all of the shrimp from our supplier is contaminated. Our company has ceased the production and distribution of the product using this shrimp, as the FDA and the company continue their investigation as to the exact source of the problem. Consumers who have purchased Fresh Shrimp Poke are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-808-842-3474 Mon – Fri 8:00am. – 5:00pm. (HST, Hawaii standard time).

Sushi My sister and I carried out Sushi on June 24, 2020. They are not allowing seating inside during Covid 19 so we ate in the car at about 2:30 pm. We shared the quinoa crunch Sushi - not sure what kind of fish. I started feeling weirdly full almost... See More immediately. Then my sister ate a Tuna Poke platter and I had Chirashi with fried tofu. I also ate 3 bites of her tuna. I could not finish the meal - I was already feeling bloated and uncomfortable. About an hour after eating I was still very uncomfortable but my sister was dizzy. Later we both had nausea and abdominal cramping and she had multiple bouts of diarrhea. We were unable to sleep just from the abdominal pain and are both still feeling sick this morning. I checked the packages, they were all dated 6/25.
