Salmonella outbreak linked to frozen shrimp

RECALL: Frozen Shrimp Linked to Salmonella Outbreak 29 June, 2021 - 12:46am

Out of an “abundance of caution,” a seafood production company issued a voluntary recall on June 25, 2021, for various packaged shrimp products due to potential contamination with the food-borne illness salmonella.

Avanti Frozen Foods Pvt. Ltd recalled nine different frozen shrimp products distributed across the U.S. from late December 2020 to late February 2021 sold under the brand names Censea, Hannaford, Open Acres, Waterfront Bistro, Honest Catch, COS, 365 and Meijer:

Six people between the ages of 30 and 80 years old had been reported ill in Nevada and Arizona as of June 24, 2021, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Illnesses started on dates ranging from Feb. 26 to April 25, according to investigation details published online by public health and regulatory officials. Two people were hospitalized and no deaths have been reported. 

“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. In addition, recent illnesses may not yet be reported as it usually takes three to four weeks to determine if a sick person is part of an outbreak,” wrote the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Salmonella was found in a sample of Avanti Frozen Foods shrimp that was collected as part of the FDA’s Imported Seafood Compliance Program, which requires that certain harvested and imported foods be tested for contaminants like salmonella, parasites, biotoxins and other potentially health-harming additives. Officials used the federal tracking system PulseNet to trace purchase records and reports of illnesses to determine that a common shipment from Avanti Frozen Seafoods was likely responsible. That shipment was destroyed in March 2021, but the seafood company recalled additional lots as they may also be contaminated with the bacteria. Recalled products included various unit sizes of frozen, cooked, peeled, and deveined shrimp, some of which came with cocktail sauce.

“Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain,” wrote the company in an announcement posted by the federal regulatory agency.

“In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.”

Symptoms of salmonella usually start six hours to six days after swallowing the bacteria. While most people recover without treatment within a week, some people — particularly young children, adults 65 and older, and people with weakened immune systems — may experience a severe illness that requires hospitalization.

The CDC recommends that consumers throw away or return affected products to the place where they were bought and wash items and surfaces that might have come into contact with the recalled shrimp.

The agency says the products have been linked to a salmonella outbreak.

You might want to double-check your ingredients the next time you're making stir fry or gumbo: On June 25, the CDC issued a food safety alert for cooked frozen shrimp distributed by Avanti Frozen Foods. The warning and recall come after Salmonella was found in a sample of the company's nationally distributed shrimp products collected as part of the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Imported Seafood Compliance Program.

According to an announcement on the FDA's website, Avanti said that out of "an abundance of caution" it had recalled "certain consignments of various sizes of frozen cooked, peeled, deveined, shrimp (with some packaged with cocktail sauce) sold in various unit sizes." The affected products were sold under the brand names 365, Censea, Chicken of the Sea, CWNO, Hannaford, Honest Catch, Meijer, Open Acres, and Waterfront Bistro.

The agency says that there have been six reported cases of Salmonella infection—including two hospitalizations—reported in Nevada and Arizona but warns that the products were distributed nationwide from late December 2020 to late February 2021. The CDC also cautions that some of the products may have been sold in stores more recently than those dates.

The CDC urges anyone who has purchased frozen shrimp products to check packaging and product codes against the FDA's recall notice. Anyone who purchased the affected items should not eat them and either throw the product out immediately or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. The agency also warns anyone who may have handled or prepared the products to wash any utensils or surfaces that may have touched the recalled products using hot soapy water or a dishwasher.

According to the CDC, symptoms of Salmonella can develop in those who have been infected anywhere from six hours to six days after the bacteria has been ingested. The most common signs are diarrhea, fever, nausea, vomiting, and stomach cramps, but some severe illnesses can rarely occur if the organism enters the bloodstream, such as arterial infections, endocarditis, and arthritis.

While most are infected recover without treatment four to seven days after their symptoms first appear, the agency warns that children under the age of five, adults 65 years and up, and people with weakened immune systems are at particularly high risk of a severe illness with Salmonella. The CDC recommends calling your doctor immediately if you notice a fever of 102 degrees Fahrenheit or higher with diarrhea or if stomach issues persist for days without getting better.
