Headed out for sushi soon? Maybe go with a California roll as frozen tuna has been recalled after it sickened at least 62 people across the country, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

34 people are known to have gotten sick in California, with 11 having been hospitalized since the outbreak began.

The details of the recall, via ABC 7:

The Osamu Corporation issued a recall Tuesday for all frozen tuna sold to restaurants and grocery stores throughout the U.S. between May 9 and July 9. This includes loin, saku, chunk, slice and ground market forms. Look for purchase numbers 8563 or 8599 on the box. There was also a recall on one lot of frozen yellowfin tuna chunk meat, number 68568, sold May 20-26.

People who have consumed contaminated tuna may experience diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps 12-72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria. If you believe you have been sickened, you should contact your healthcare provider. Groups at higher risk include people younger than age 5, people over 65 and pregnant women.

I just checked and there is no recall on bacon so, to be safe, just eat bacon from now on.
