The offers of $500 gift certificates to Whole Foods on Facebook? Yup, they're too good to be true -- it's yet another scam.

Whole Foods Market is recalling frozen yellow fin tuna steaks, with best-by dates of Dec. 5, 2010, because they could have elevated levels of histamine.

High levels of histamine can cause an allergic reaction called scombroid poisoning.

Symptoms may include: tingling or burning sensation in the mouth, facial swelling, rash, hives and itchy skin, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.

Two incidents have been reported.

The fish was sold in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Missouri, Michigan, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, North Carolina, Connecticut, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, Rhode Island, Maine and Washington, D.C.

Details: by phone at 512-542-0656.
