Product Recall News: Shrimp Contaminated with Salmonella

As one of the nation’s most trusted consumer class action and product defect law firms, Golomb Legal. keeps an eye on developing stories about dangerous products that could potentially affect thousands of Americans. In recent product recall news, dozens of shrimp products are being pulled off the shelves of major retailers due to a serious salmonella scare.

Based on reports from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), at least 9 people in 4 states have ingested the contaminated shrimp products. 3 of those people have been hospitalized, but it is not known if their conditions remained serious after initial treatments. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stated that the products were likely manufactured up until May 2021, but it is likely that they are still on shelves in August due to their long shelf-life when frozen.

Whole Foods and Target are two of the largest retailers that have been impacted by the recall. Although, many grocers have been informed to check their stock for products that could be contaminated.

Some of the products that have been marked for a recall include:

  • Meijer brand “Cooked Shrimp” products
  • Mai Cuisine Inc. brand “Shrimp Tempura Kabuki Roll” products
  • Chicken of the Sea brand “Frozen Shrimp Ring” products
  • Big River brand “Frozen Cooked Peeled & Deveined Tail Off Shrimps” products
