HAWAII — The FDA is investigating a seafood distributor after more than 200 people were sickened with Hepatitis A.

The Sea Port Products Corporation has voluntarily recalled a batch of its scallops that were supplied to restaurants and other commercial groups in Hawaii, Nevada and California, according to the FDA Website.

The scallops were not sold in stores, and the Hawaiian Department of Health says the scallops served at Genki Sushi restaurants on Oahu and Kauai are likely the source of an ongoing outbreak there.

Of the 206 who contracted Hepatitis A, 51 were hospitalized.

The FDA suggests customers who want like to eat scallops in the states where the recall is in effect should ask the restaurant where the scallops came from.
