Contaminated food products recalled after over 200 suffer illness

In connection with a federal investigation, a food company issued a voluntary recall to their products after 206 persons were sickened by hepatitis A after consuming raw scallops, an article of CNN reported on August 22.

Reports said the Health Department in Hawaii is being assisted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with their investigation after hundreds of persons suffered from the illness that could be fatal in people with compromised immune systems. Recalling company Sea Port Products Corp reportedly was responsible for supplying scallops to restaurants in California, Nevada, and Hawaii. The recall was announced after investigators found out that the food was confirmed to have hepatitis A. In the total of the persons who have complaints of illnesses, 56 of them were forced to seek medical attention. Consumers were advised to identify the source of the scallops first before consuming it.
