Shrimp Salmonella Outbreak
Avanti issued the recall expansion at the request of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) after new cases were reported in an outbreak that was thought to be over. On July 21, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said the Salmonella Weltevreden outbreak linked to cooked shrimp had ended after sickening six people in two states. Since that time, three more illnesses -two in Michigan and one in Rhode Island, have been reported and one person was hospitalized.
