Sushi has been getting dragged a bit of late, with the CDC recently warning against a parasitic disease called Anisakiasis, as cases have been slowly growing in the United States. Earlier this year, we also learned that half the sushi dishes in Los Angeles are actually mislabeled, and you’re not actually getting what you ask for.
The FDA is doing additional testing on the food coming out of Hilo Company, but if you think you’ve eaten at any of the listed places, make sure to get checked by a doctor, just in case.
