Persons who consumed Poke from the affected food establishments between April 28 and May 1 may have been exposed to Hepatitis A and are advised to do the following:

  1. Immediately contact their healthcare provider about receiving a Hepatitis A Vaccine or Immune Globulin (“IG”) shot, which may provide some protection against the disease if administered within two (2) weeks after exposure.

  3. Wash hands with soap and warm water frequently and thoroughly, especially after using the bathroom and before preparing food.
  4. Stay at home and contact their healthcare provider immediately if symptoms of Hepatitis A infection develop.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Raw Tuna, please do not consume any leftovers directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation.
