Avanti Frozen Shrimp Recall 2021 – Nationwide Recall Over The Risks Of Salmonella Contamination…

Frozen Shrimp Product Being Recalled Nationwide Following Multiple Reports of Illness

Avanti Frozen Foods Pvt. Ltd has recalled frozen cooked shrimp distributed nationwide following six reports of consumers falling ill after consuming the shrimps, according to a recall notice released Friday.

Salmonella Contamination

The company is voluntarily recalling frozen shrimp sold between December 2020 and late February 2021 due to the possibility of salmonella contamination. 

The recalled shrimp contains various sizes of frozen cooked, peeled, and deveined shrimp, some of which are packaged with cocktail sauce, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced.

Initially, the shrimp products were distributed to supermarkets in late 2020. However, because they have an expiration date of 2022, there is a possibility of it still being stored in freezers.

The recalled frozen product was sold under a variety of brand names. Product details can be found below:

Salmonella Infection Symptoms

Salmonella, the agency warns, is an organism—the most often reported cause of foodborne illness in the United States—that can cause severe and often deadly illnesses in children, the elderly, frail, and others with weak immune systems.

Healthy individuals with infection caused by Salmonella often experience: 

  • Fever
  • Diarrhea (may be bloody)
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Stomach pain

According to the recall notice, salmonella infections can occasionally enter the bloodstream and cause:

  • Arterial infections
  • Arthritis
  • Endocarditis

Avanti Frozen Foods Pvt. Ltd Recall, 2021

FDA discovered the possibility for contamination based on the previous testing of frozen cooked shrimp imported by Avanti Frozen Foods that tested positive for Salmonella. Moreover, the company discarded and destroyed the prior shipment found to be violative and has taken preventative measures to ensure that contamination does not occur in the future.

The FDA advises people not to consume the recalled frozen cooked shrimp. Returns are accepted at the place of purchase for a full refund. Avanti Frozen Foods may be reached via +914023310260/+914023310261.
