Oahu Distributor Recalls Tainted Ahi

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- An Oahu seafood distributor has recalled 11,000 pounds of ahi after learning from the Food and Drug Administration, one parcel of its Yellowfin tuna tested positive for Salmonella.

Choyce Products immediately issued a voluntary recall on that shipment and confirmed none of its customers have any tainted ahi in their inventory.

"We unknowingly received a tainted parcel," said Edmund Choy, owner of Choyce Products.  "The parcel managed to slip through the country's rigorous seafood inspections conducted at the borders and continued down the food distribution chain."

The tainted fish was delivered from a seafood distributor in Indonesia.

The FDA is investigating whether other wholesalers received tainted ahi.
