The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said a Salmonella outbreak that has sickened multiple people is linked to frozen cooked shrimp. 

The shrimp, made by Avanti Frozen Foods, has since been recalled nationwide. 

As of June 25, the CDC said six adults from Nevada and Arizona have been infected with the particular strain of Salmonella linked to the outbreak. 

The true number of sick people in an outbreak is likely much higher than the number reported, and the outbreak may not be limited to the states with known illnesses. This is because many people recover without medical care and are not tested for Salmonella, the CDC said. 

Several products are included in the recall from Avanti Frozen Foods.

The shrimp was sold under multiple brand names including 365, Censea, Chicken of the Sea, CWNO, Hannaford, Honest Catch, Meijer, Open Acres and Waterfront Bistro.

The products were distributed nationwide from late December 2020 to late February 2021. You can see more details and descriptions for the affected product in the FDA recall here

If you have any of the products, throw them away or return them to the store where you purchased them. 

Most people infected with Salmonella experience diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps, the CDC said. 

Symptoms usually start six hours to six days after swallowing the bacteria. Most people recover without treatment after four to seven days. 

The CDC recommends calling your healthcare provider if you have diarrhea and a fever higher than 102 degrees; diarrhea with no improvement for more than three days; bloody diarrhea; so much vomiting that you cannot keep liquids down; or signs of dehydration.

Shrimp recall: These brands have possible salmonella risk

WJW FOX 8 News Cleveland 28 June, 2021 - 10:16am

(WBRE/WYOU) — You may want to check your freezers. Avanti Frozen Foods is recalling several shrimp products after the FDA tested and found salmonella in a sample of frozen cooked shrimp.

Shrimp brands including Censea, Hannaford, Open Acres, Waterfront Bistro, Honest catch, COS, 365 and Meijer have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella, according to the FDA.

The FDA released the company’s announcement on June 25 saying the affected products were distributed nationwide from late December 2020 to late February 2021.

Consumers with the following products should not consume the shrimp and should return it to the place of purchase or throw it away, the FDA said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has linked six cases of illness in two different states from affected frozen cooked shrimp.

Even though the products were imported between December 2020 and February 2021, they may have been sold in stores more recently.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in children, frail or elderly people and people with weakened immune systems. You should call your healthcare provider if you experience any salmonella symptoms such as diarrhea and a fever of 102°F. Other symptoms include nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

The CDC recommends that items and surfaces that came into contact with the recalled products be washed with hot soapy water or in a dishwasher.

For more information, contact the company at +(91) 402-331-0260 Monday-Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. GMT +5.5.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WJW/AP) -- Gov. Mike DeWine today will sign an executive order allowing college athletes in Ohio to earn money off their name, image and likeness after the legislation was wiped out over a controversial GOP attempt to ban transgender girls from participating in high school sports.

The bill would bring Ohio up to speed with more than a dozen states who now prevent universities or college athletic conferences from punishing athletes if they are compensated based on their sports performance. Such compensation could involve anything from a book-signing at a bookstore to a deal with a local restaurant. Exceptions include sponsorships for marijuana, alcohol, tobacco and casinos, which are not permitted under the bill.

In a Facebook post, police say although this was one of many sightings in the area, there's no reason to panic because Lake County is a common place in Ohio to spot a black bear.

The 38-year-old driver was picking up the passenger in the 700 block of Copley Road around 11 p.m. when an unknown suspect in another car drove by and began shooting at them, according to police.
