Avanti Frozen Foods Frozen Cooked Shrimp Recall Information

On June 25, 2021, Avanti Frozen Foods has recalled specific products of frozen cooked, peeled, deveined, shrimp (some with cocktail sauce) sold in various sizes because they could potentially be contaminated with Salmonella. These frozen shrimp products were distributed nationwide from late December 2020 to late February 2021.

Consumers who purchased the affected frozen shrimp products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

About Salmonella

Common symptoms of salmonellosis (Salmonella infection) may include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating a contaminated food product. Illness usually lasts from about 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness.

Questions or concerns about foodborne illness should be directed to your health care provider.
