The recalled products include frozen yellowfin tuna steaks from Sustainable Seafood Company, yellowfin tuna cubes from Santa Cruz Seafood, 8-ounce tuna steaks from Hilo Fish Company with an expiration date of Oct. 1, 2018, and 15-pound frozen yellowfin tuna cubes with an expiration date of April 4, 2019.

The FDA warning also includes a list of restaurants that have bought the recalled fish. Tuna lovers, be careful out there!
