Frozen shrimp recalled because it may be contaminated with salmonella, six sickened

Avanti Frozen Foods has recalled frozen cooked, peeled, deveined, shrimp sold in various unit sizes, because it has the potential to be contaminated with salmonella, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.

According to the FDA, “There have been six reports of salmonella-related illnesses to date associated with these cooked shrimp distributions.”

The shrimp was distributed nationwide from late December 2020 to late February 2021 with the brand names Censea, Hannaford, Open Acres, Waterfront Bistro, Honest Catch, COS, 365 and Meijer.

According to the FDA, the salmonella organism “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. 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.”

The FDA said, “The potential for contamination was identified by FDA based on its prior testing of frozen cooked shrimp imported by Avanti Frozen Foods that was found to contain Salmonella.

Avanti Frozen Foods did not distribute and destroyed that prior shipment found to be violative. The company has taken preventative steps to eliminate the potential for future contamination.”

All of the recalled frozen, cooked shrimp have expiration dates in 2022.

People who bought the shrimp can return it to the place of purchase for a refund.
