WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Federal officials say they've found the source of a Salmonella outbreak in Wisconsin and 19 other states.
The Food and Drug Administration says the bacteria is from frozen raw yellowfin tuna. The fish has been used in sushi at restaurants and sold at grocery stores.
116 people have gotten sick during the outbreak, including 14 people in Wisconsin. Seven of the cases are in Waukesha County, six are in Milwaukee County and one is in Washington County.
Moon Marine USA Corp., the California company that makes the tuna, is recalling more than 58,000 pounds of the product. It was labeled as Nakaochi Scrape AA or AAA when it was sold to grocery stores and restaurants and is scraped off the fish bones and looks like a ground product.
