The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is investigating the risks of hepatitis A virus in potentially contaminated frozen tuna. The tuna may have been sold in Texas, Oklahoma and California. 

The FDA has released a list of establishments that may have sold the contaminated tuna. The stores around the Austin area include:

  • Central Market Kitchen N, HEB Vendor #15385, Austin, TX

The tuna was sourced from Sustainable Seafood Company, Vietnam, and Santa Cruz Seafood Inc., Philippines, according to the FDA. 

The FDA says consumers "may be at risk of contracting a hepatitis A infection due to the consumption," however, the CDC has not been made aware of any illnesses associated with the contamination to date.
