The FDA is advising consumers not to eat yellowfin tuna steaks from Kroger retail stores in multiple states, including Virginia.

The FDA has received reports by consumers who recently experienced symptoms of scombroid poisoning after eating yellowfin tuna steaks purchased at Kroger stores.

The tuna steaks had sell-by dates from Aug. 29 and Sept. 14, and maybe sold raw at the seafood counter or seasoned in store-prepped Styrofoam trays.

Kroger has agreed to remove all yellowfin tuna steaks from their stores in affected states and agreed to begin notifying consumers who had purchased this product to dispose of or return the product to the store.
