Supervalu has issued an urgent recall notice to their customers for two batches of products over serious allergy fears.
Supervalu issued a warning to loyal shoppers after their tuna products sparked fears they could trigger allergy-like symptoms in consumers.
The supermarket has called back the products, which are their Yellowfin Tuna Steaks from its Signature Taste range – after discovering the unusually high levels of histamines. Supervalu is urging customers who have purchased the products in recent weeks not to consume them.

In some people, elevated levels of histamine can cause symptoms that resemble an allergic reaction.
The products, whose country of origin are unknown, are popular with fish-lovers on Supervalu’s shelves.
The recall notice states that the use-by dates on the products are February 16 and 17 so if you have them at home, be sure to check.
The product is listed as SuperValu Signature Taste Line Caught Yellowfin Tuna Steaks; pack size: 240g.
As a result of the histamine problem, point-of-sale recall notices will now be displayed in stores where affected batches are being sold.
The move is being taken as a precautionary measure, the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) said in a statement, sharing:
“As a precaution, Supervalu is recalling the above two batches of its Signature Taste Yellowfin Tuna Steaks due to the possible presence of elevated histamine levels. In some people, elevated levels of histamine can cause symptoms which are similar to those of an allergic reaction. Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches.”
This comes after an urgent recall of dangerous diet pills was issued earlier last week.
The website, states that the drug, known as DNP, has a highly toxic industrial chemical with legitimate uses, but it is not intended for human consumption.
“DNP is a yellow powder, often put into capsules before being sold to the consumer as a fat loss aid. Following an intelligence led investigation by the FSAI, in cooperation with other State agencies, a quantity of capsules containing DNP were seized. These capsules were made available via the website www. FatBurney.com.
“DNP has been abused as a ‘fat burner’ to achieve rapid weight loss through accelerating the metabolism. Its use has serious and unpredictable side effects, with a number of fatalities recorded.
“Do NOT consume any DNP capsules obtained via this website or any associated social media site.”
