Tuna products sold at Saskatchewan Save-On-Foods being recalled

Various tuna products sold at Save-On-Foods stores in Saskatchewan are being recalled by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

The CFIA says the products are being recalled because of a high level of histamine which can cause an allergic-type reaction where you could experience symptoms like a burning throat, diarrhea, facial swelling and vomiting.

The CFIA adds histamine levels in fish can become toxic as a result of spoiling or inadequate refrigeration and that the chemical is not destroyed when the food is cooked.

The recall is for tuna products sold between September 18, 2019 and the end of February at Save-On-Foods  stores in Western Canada.

If you have any of these in your possession, you should either throw it out or return it to the store where it was purchased.
