A total of 425 people across the United States haven been sickened with Salmonella from eating sushi made with Nakaochi scrape, also known as tuna scrape. Of those sickened, 55 were hospitalized. Recently the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released updated information and stated the outbreak may be over; however, additional cases may continue to surface if food establishments unknowingly serve the product, which was distributed by Moon Marine USA Corporation.
Tuna scrape is made from meat removed from the backbone of fish. It is a product intended to be cooked, but in this outbreak it was consumed from eating sushi made with the raw product.
