Before you make that scampi or shrimp cocktail this weekend - you might want to double check the product packaging.  A widespread recall has been issued for more than 20,000 packages of Fisherman's Wharf cooked, frozen shrimp due to the potential for Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

Fisherman's Wharf shrimp products are packaged in Jacksonville, Florida and are distributed domestically across the entire United States.

Here are the specific details you need in order to check your packages of frozen shrimp:

  • Product Name:  Fisherman's Wharf, Shrimp 16/20 Cooked Shrimp
  • Bag size:  16-ounce packages
  • Identifying number:  7306067
  • Lot number:  77185
  • Expiration Dates:  4/5/2023 and 4/6/2023

Due to the nature of frozen shrimp products, there is a concern that customers may have purchased the products, brought them home to their freezer, and they might not potentially be discovered or used for a while due to their long shelf life.  Consumers are urged to check any bags of cooked, frozen shrimp that they have in their freezers right now - when the details and the news if fresh.

Listeria-problems can be difficult to easily identify.  "Food that's contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled, but can still cause serious and sometimes life-threatening infections".

Common symptoms of a Listeria infection can include:

  • Fever
  • Headaches (usually severe or long in duration)
  • Muscle aches
  • Nausea
  • Neck stiffness
  • Vomiting

If you have any of the bags of Fisherman's Wharf cooked, frozen shrimp in your freezer, you're urged to throw them away.  You can also return them to the store location where you bought them for a full refund.
