so i do love sushi. so a few weeks ago me and the old lady went out for sushi, we ordered the GIANT boat full of sushi and sashimi, literally it was a giant boat with sail and everything, kind of over kill in presentation but a giant order none the less. in the past i have taken quite a liking to what i was told was "white tuna" now i kind of thought that it may have been Chilean sea bass, since it was so nice and tender and buttery, unlike any fish i had ever had.

apparently its not "white tuna" or "sea bass" its the magical "shit" fish, escolar, if you have ever seen a beautiful slab of tender almost butter like deliciousness on your plate that is most likely what it is.

now the fun begins, well..... i am well known for my "broken ass" ive had plenty cases of the shits, usually from some questionable mystery meat, left overs that were just a few days past there prime or some other type of culinary adventure gone wrong..... but NEVER like these kinds of shits, actually i kind of enjoy a good ass blasting from time to time but i do get just a tad concerned when i get up to inspect my handy work i notice an interesting sheen of orange oil like droplets floating around the bowl.... thats right kiddy's, flat out nasty orange oil blobs like a pep boys parking lot puddle after a rain storm, oh and the best part? yea... my asshole would not stem the tide of the orange liquid... good thing i dont wear tighty whiteys i would have ruined them.

not that this will deter me from eating it, it is a heavenly delicacy thats for sure but i will eat a few less pieces next time... i will just let iron gut bob eat it, i swear that girl could eat mystery meat off a cart in Istanbul and not get the shits. i swear it was from her college days of growing salmonella to pass bio chem courses.

I had a co-worker who got Sushi from a 7-11...I made him ride in back of the truck and called out of service due to mechanical quickly after, which he complained on the phone about to my supervisor about until in the middle of the call...he screamed....PULL OVER....and dropped the phone and ran out of the truck once I did....I got a 50$ gift card for my foresight in avoiding a potential ongoing vehicle issue.

Cripes... they have a sushi case in like every supermarket across the entire country. I think they sell it at 7-11 now. Sushi is about "hipster exotic" as a taco.

Oh... absolutely... "cheap" and "sushi" are two words that don't belong anywhere in the vicinity of each other.

But some quality sushi prepared by a pro sushi chef is sublime.

You're not worthy. Stick to your Big Macs, ya philistine.

Whistleblower: 'White tuna' on menu can be gut-wrenching


The sushi menus listed "white tuna," but Minneapolis health inspectors determined the fish should have been labeled by its real name -- escolar. And if customers knew about the fish's reputation, they might stick with the California roll.

At least four Minneapolis sushi restaurants were found to be serving escolar and calling it something else in the second half of 2011, according to city Department of Regulatory Services inspection reports.

Escolar is edible and legal in the United States, but the U.S. Food and Drug Administration advises against any sale of the fish. It's packed with an indigestible waxy substance called gempylotoxin that can make people who eat too much of it ill for days with diarrhea, nausea, cramping and other effects.

Online discussions about escolar range from praise for its rich, buttery delicacy to condemnation as the "Ex-Lax'' of fish.

City inspectors cited four restaurants for mislabeling escolar: Tiger Sushi, Mt. Fuji Restaurant, Wondrous Azian Kitchen and Wasabi Fusion Restaurant. Another restaurant, Teppanyaki Grill & Supreme Buffet, failed to list escolar in its sushi bar consumer advisory even though it was served. Another restaurant was selling escolar under the name of "white fish" in 2010, but has stopped doing so.

The eateries used the names white tuna, super white tuna, bincyo and white fish instead of the only FDA-approved name, escolar. Inspectors discovered the illegal misnaming or omission by comparing invoices and in-stock product against menus, said Curt Fernandez, manager of the city's Department of Regulatory Services & Emergency Preparedness.

Wasabi's manager, Takeshi Hatori, said his menu included an item called white tuna, but he said that "the server [would] ask the customers, do you mean the escolar or the albacore tuna?" He said he's in the process of changing his menu.

All the other cited restaurants have corrected their printed menus, according to Fernandez.

Tiger Sushi's owner, Lisa Mann, said escolar is "known all over the country as super white tuna."

"But all of our menus now clearly show the various names it is known by," she said. "And we do that so that we can keep things clear for consumers."

But as of Friday, Tiger Sushi and one other cited restaurant, Mt. Fuji, hadn't corrected their online menus. Mann said she doesn't change her online menu as often as her printed menus due to the expense. "But I imagine I'll have to do that soon," she said.

Restaurants that don't correct violations in a reasonable amount of time face re-inspection fees or other disciplinary action, Fernandez said.

White tuna is an incorrect name for any fish, including tuna, according to FDA spokesman Doug Karas. But the restaurants may not necessarily be at fault for the misnaming, he added. It's possible that "somewhere along the distribution chain somebody has renamed it."

Though escolar is legal to sell, "We request that people who sell it, either manufacturers [or] processors inform people who buy it about the effects it can have on people who eat it," Karas said.

Calls by Whistleblower to Mt. Fuji and Wondrous Azian Kitchen weren't returned.

When asked about any illnesses associated with local consumption of escolar, Fernandez said "we do not have an outbreak associated with escolar in Minneapolis."

A nationwide trend

The mislabeling of fish is a widespread phenomenon. Florida cited 186 restaurants in 2010 for mislabeling fish, the Sun Sentinel newspaper in Fort Lauderdale reported that year. Most of 24 cases of tuna substitution involved escolar. A study by Nova Southeastern University in Florida in 2011 found that all of the 10 restaurants studied sold escolar as white tuna.

A study by Columbia University and the American Museum of Natural History in 2009 found that five of nine white tuna offerings in restaurants in Denver and New York City were really escolar. The report said that the sale of escolar is banned in Japan and Italy due to health concerns.

The FDA inspects imported fish at the border as well as fish at domestic seafood processing facilities, storage facilities and shippers, but leaves most of the retail mislabeling issues to local and state authorities.

A recent advancement in the detection of mislabeled fish is through DNA barcoding. Six FDA laboratories test fish for certain gene fragments at any stage in the distribution chain, including at the retail level, to verify that the product is properly named, and as a side benefit, properly priced.

Seafood importers found to be misrepresenting their fish are put on a list and must prove that their fish is what they claim it to be before it enters the country.

From Health Canada eh:

Health Effects

Although gempylotoxin is indigestible by humans, not everyone that consumes escolar experiences undesirable symptoms. When these undesirable symptoms do occur, onset generally takes place a few hours following escolar consumption and ceases within 24 to 48 hours. Symptoms, in those who experience them, can include one or more of the following: the rectal passage of an oily yellow or orange substance (called keriorrhoea), diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and headache. Kerriorrhoea is not associated with a loss of bodily fluids and is not considered life threatening.

This sort of thing happens all the time... like back in the day people used to catch Skate:



And use a skate press (kinda like a hole punch) and sell it as scallops...

Or even just buying actual scallops some processors put Sodium triphosphate so they retain more water... ergo more weight.
