Tuna subject to recall was not served at three downtown Modesto restaurants included in a notice from the federal Food and Drug Administration, managers said Saturday and Sunday.
Camp 4 Wine Cafe and Fuzio Universal Bistro said they were informed nearly a month ago about frozen tuna recalled because of concern about hepatitis A, and it never made it to customers. Galletto Ristorante said it only received a one-pound sample and it, too, was not consumed.
FDA officials said that on May 18, the Hilo Fish Co. in Hawaii began recalling tuna sourced from the Sustainable Seafood Company in Vietnam and the Santa Cruz Seafood Co. in the Philippines, according to the Fresno Bee. Samples of the fish tested positive for Hepatitis A, a potentially severe liver disease. No illnesses have been reported.
The Modesto restaurants were among 17 in California identified by the FDA.
“We at Camp 4 believe that transparency and an open dialogue are key with our customers and in life,” owner Damon Robbins posted on its website. “Thank you for your trust and know that we will always put health and safety first.”
