Seafood lovers, beware. If tuna and other fresh fish are not properly refrigerated, this underwater food source begins to release hard-to-destroy natural toxins (like scombrotoxin), and consumption can also cause illnesses related to norovirus and salmonella.
Madelyn’s safety tip: “Love sushi? Keep it cold! Make sure tuna has been kept on ice. But if it's kept higher than refrigerator temperature, you can risk bacterial growth.”
