At least 128 people fall ill from sushi sold at Concord Harris Teeter stores

Fox 46 (apologies for source)

CONCORD, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) – More than 120 people have now gotten sick after eating sushi sold at two Concord Harris Teeter locations, according to local health officials on Tuesday.

“As of 10:49 a.m., our Environmental Health Department confirmed 85 households and 128 individuals who have been or are still currently sick,” Cabarrus Health Alliance said.

CHA and Harris Teeter officials are continuing to investigate multiple reports of illness linked to AFC sushi purchased and eaten from two Harris Teeter locations:

Harris Teeter at 358 George W. Liles Pkwy NW, Concord

Harris Teeter at 1245 Concord Parkway North, Concord

Those ill are experiencing symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea, fever, muscle aches, and abdominal cramps, health officials said.

CHA is aware of more than 120 people who are sick and have consumed sushi from the third-party AFC Sushi kiosk located within the two Harris Teeter stores between Nov. 13 and Nov. 19.

Using loyalty card transaction data, Harris Teeter proactively identified and notified 429 households which purchased sushi product at these locations during the identified timeframe. At least 85 households have been affected, CHS confirmed on Tuesday.

“We are encouraging anyone who purchased sushi from the George w. Liles or the Concord Parkway Harris Teeter between November 13 and November 19, to throw away any purchased items or leftovers,” said Chrystal Swinger, CHA Environmental Health Director.

2. Dang, I always grab some spicy tuna rolls at the local Teeter

when I shop there. There is always someone making them fresh, so it feels safe.
Ya never know.

7. Haven't had sushi in months :(

So should be fine. Thanks for the well-wishes, though. I was doing curbside pickup at Walmart, but recently started popping into Giant once a week, after work, when it is nearly empty. The Giant is set up more standardly than the Teeter, so I can zoom in and out in under 10 minutes. I miss going to Wegman’s, too, but am going for speedy and safe over an enjoyable shopping experience.

ETA: with the virus getting worse, I‘ve been thinking about going back to curbside, only.

3. The picture in that article made me so hungry for sushi.

And I don't live within 100 miles of sushi, and I wouldn't go out anyway. I wonder if anyone delivers sushi by Fedex?

8. We just finished off 4 packages of sushi that we bought at WalMart last week. No ill effects.

Of course we only consume California Roll sushi (no raw fish).
