COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Sea Port Products Corp. is voluntarily recalling a batch of its scallops.

At least 206 people have become sick with hepatitis A, prompting an investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The cases are linked to raw scallops.

Hepatitis A is a liver disease that can cause severe stomach pains, dark jaundice and fatigue.

The scallops were not for sale in stores – but were supplied to restaurants and other commercial groups.

The company voluntarily recalled the scallops that were distributed to Hawaii, Nevada and California.

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