The CDC and FDA are investigating a Salmonella outbreak linked to frozen shrimp.  At least two people have been hospitalized and six have contracted Salmonellosis in this Salmonella shrimp outbreak.

The frozen cooked shrimp were supplied by Avanti Frozen Foods.  The shrimp were sold under multiple brand names including 365, Censea, Chicken of the Sea, CWNO, Hannaford, Honest Catch, Meijer, Open Acres, and Waterfront Bistro.  You can see the recall notices here.

The shrimp were imported between December 2020 and February 2021.  But these frozen shrimp may have been sold in stores more recently.
