scombroid poisoning

Apparently caused by bacterial spoilage of fish including many of the Scombridae (tuna, bonito, mackerel) but also non-scombroid fish and other foods. Symptoms (including skin rash, nausea, tingling) resemble histamine poisoning and were previously thought to be due to bacterial formation of histamine, now doubted.
