Do you have frozen cooked shrimp in your freezer? You may want to check to see if the package falls under one of the brands the CDC linked to a salmonella outbreak.

The CDC linked the salmonella outbreak to multiple brands of Avanti frozen cooked shrimp products.

So far, it has made six people sick and two of them had to be hospitalized in Arizona and Nevada. While the outbreak hasn’t made it to Virginia, the products are still sold nationwide.

These products are also sold under the following brand names that may be familiar to some:

  • 365
  • Censea
  • Chicken of the sea
  • CWNO
  • Hannaford
  • Honest Catch
  • Meijer
  • Open Acres
  • Waterfront Bistro

The recalled products were distributed between December 2020 and February 2021, but the CDC said they may have been in stores more recently.
