·3 min read

VISAKHAPATNAM, India, June 25, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Avanti Frozen Foods Pvt. Ltd:

Summary

Company Announcement Date:

June 24, 2021

FDA Publish Date:

June 24, 2021

Product Type:

Food & Beverages

Reason for Announcement:

Potential for Salmonella

Company Name:

Avanti Frozen Foods Pvt. Limited

Brand Name:

Censea/Hannaford/Open acres/Honest catch/COS and others

Product Description:

Frozen cooked, peeled and deveined, tail on shrimp

Avanti Frozen Foods Pvt. Ltd, with an abundance of caution, is recalling certain consignments of various sizes of frozen cooked, peeled, deveined, shrimp (with some packaged with cocktail sauce) sold in various unit sizes, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The frozen shrimp products were distributed nationwide from late December 2020 to late February 2021

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. 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 affected product details are as below. The brand names of the products are: Censea/Hannaford/Open acres/Waterfront Bistro/Honest catch/COS/365/Meijer
