UPDATE: According to the Southern Nevada Health District, none of the recalled scallops have been distributed in the local area.
 
SNHD contacted local food facilities, local casinos and seafood distributors in Southern Nevada and determined that only a small quantity of the scallops was received by a local distributor who has already disposed of the scallops in question. No one else received the recalled product.
 
ORIGINAL STORY
 
The Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local Hawaii officials are investigating an outbreak of hepatitis A virus (HAV) infections linked to scallops supplied by Sea Port Products Corp. The scallops were distributed to Nevada, as well as California and Hawaii. 
 
Frozen Bay Scallops are distributed to restaurants and retailers, not the general public. Foodservice operators should not sell the recalled product.
 
FDA officials are working with a recalling firm to ensure the seafood is removed from the market.
 
Consumers are advised to ask where their food came from when ordering scallops.
