Recall: Hannaford brand frozen raw extra jumbo (16/20) shrimp
Hannford brand frozen raw extra jumbo (16/20) shrimp in 16 oz packages (labeled as a product of Mexico), as well as the same brand of shrimp from full service seafood cases have been recalled by Eatern Seafood, out of Teaneck, N.J., due to undeclared sulfites that may be present in the shrimp.
Those with allergies or sensitivities to sulfides could have an averse reaction if eating this shrimp.
Hannaford stores in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts and Maine have received the recalled shrimp, along with independent stores that Hannaford services. The shrimp was sold sold May 4 through June 4.
As of today, no adverse reactions have been reported to Hannaford stores. The North Carolina Department of Agriculture found traces of the sulfites during routine product testing. The Eastern Fish company has been cooperative with the FDA in this recall.
Customers can return packages of the shrimp purchased in that time frame to the Hannafords they purchased from for a full refund.
