If you bought this frozen shrimp, it's been recalled 27 June, 2021 - 11:12pm

A salmonella outbreak linked to frozen cooked shrimp sold under different brand names has prompted a recall of the product and a food safety alert from the top U.S. health agency.

Avanti Frozen Foods said it is recalling various unit sizes of its frozen, cooked, peeled, deveined shrimp because of the potential for salmonella. The company said the shrimp was distributed nationwide from late December 2020 to February 2021. But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said they may have been sold more recently.

The CDC issued a food safety alert, saying six people have reported getting sick after eating the shrimp -- four in Nevada and two in Arizona. But there could be more cases that have yet to be reported because the shrimp was distributed across the country.

The shrimp was sold under brand names that included Censea, Chicken of the Sea, CWNO, Hannaford, Open Acres, Waterfront Bistro, Honest Catch, 365 and Meijer. They were packaged in various unit sizes and best-by dates, which can be found in a chart at this link.

The potential contamination was found after testing by the Food and Drug Administration. The CDC says an investigation remains active.

The CDC says most people infected with Salmonella experience diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps. Symptoms can emerge six hours to six days after being infected, but most people recover without treatment after four to seven days.

Those with weakened immune systems, children under age 5 and adults over 65 may experience more severe symptoms that require treatment or hospitalization, the CDC said.

CDC warning public of Salmonella outbreak that has sickened nearly 500 where 30 percent are children under 5

Fall River Reporter 27 June, 2021 - 11:12pm

The CDC is issuing a warning after nearly 500 people have been sickened across the country.

474 people have fallen ill from Salmonella due to backyard poultry.

Backyard poultry, like chicken and ducks, can carry Salmonella germs even if they look healthy and clean. These germs can easily spread to anything in the areas where the poultry live and roam. This is how residents are becoming sick in the outbreak.

You can get sick from touching your backyard poultry or anything in their environment and then touching your mouth or food, and swallowing Salmonella germs.

In addition to the 474 illnesses that have occurred in 46 states (every state except Alaska, Hawaii, New Mexico, and Delaware), 103 have been hospitalized and one person has been killed.

Most of the cases have occurred in the last few months, according to the CDC.

Call your healthcare provider right away if you have any of these severe symptoms:
