FDA Says Tainted Limu May Have Reached Mainland and Japan0
The Food and Drug Administration said customers in California, Washington, Nevada and Tokyo may have tainted limu and sea asparagus suspected in a salmonella outbreak in Hawaii. Marine Agrifuture LLC, also known as Olokai Hawaii, on Monday posted a notice on the Food and Drug Administration’s website that gave more details about its distribution.
In that note, it said the “Kahuku Ogo,” “Robusta Ogo” and “Kahuku Sea Asparagus” were sold primarily in Hawaii but also went to some customers in those other regions.
Last week, the state Department of Health ordered the Kahuku farm to stop selling and distributing its products sold wholesale and used in retail products such as salad dressing, tea and condiments. At least 14 cases of salmonella were reported on Oahu. Salmonella can cause fever, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, usually within 12 to 72 hours after infection.
