Consumers are advised not to consume the Kroger tuna sold raw at the seafood counter or the in-store prepared tuna steaks dated between Aug. 29 and Sept. 14.

The FDA warned against stores in the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, Nebraska, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia.

Scombroid poisoning is caused by eating under-refrigerated fish with high levels of histamine and mostly common among fish that naturally have high levels of amino acid histidine.
