The recall follows a public health investigation of approximately 35 confirmed cases of Salmonella Paratyphi B food poisoning. 

Most of the Salmonella cases occurred in Hawaii, on the island of Oahu, although DNA fingerprinting (a process that allows scientists to compare bacterial DNA), later linked one California and two Colorado Salmonella cases to the Hawaii Salmonella outbreak.

According to a company press release:

Choyce Products' customers received the cubed tuna in frozen form. The frozen product is packaged in labeled white cardboard shipping boxes containing 22 pounds of product. These boxes each contain 11 2-pound packages of vacuum-packed product in unlabeled plastic bags. White stickers on the cardboard shipping boxes have the following code information:

  • Lot Number 0727408005899 with Production Dates October 1 and 2, 2007
  • Lot Number 0725008005899 with Production Date September 7, 2007
  • Lot Number 0726408005899 with Production Date September 21, 2007

The Salmonella contamination connected to Choyce Products tuna was discovered after the FDA sampled fish from a number of  local distributers in an effort to identify the source off the recent Salmonella Paratyphi B outbreak.

The Choyce Products’ press release also stated:

The frozen Yellowfin tuna was distributed on Oahu and most likely reached consumers in the form of a mixed, previously frozen, seafood product through its customers. Choyce Products received the tuna from a mainland importer who confirmed the tuna was sent from Indonesia.
