The Hawaii State Department of Health is warning consumers not to eat monk fish because of a possible health risk from a shipment of the monk fish to Hawaii that is under investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Consumers who have purchased Monkfish are urged to return it to the place of purchase or discard it. Care should be used in handling the fish as a toxin may be present on the skin and flesh of the fish.
