Pre-cooked shrimp is the likely source of a Salmonella Weltevreden outbreak that has sickened at least six people, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The agency is not releasing the name of the company, the brand name of the product, or the locations where it was sold saying that it appears the affected product is no longer on the market.
“They should identify the sources even if the affected products are no longer available,” said Food Safety Attorney Fred Pritzker. “Consumers should be made aware so they can make informed choices.”

Salmonella Weltevreden is not a common strain, but is an emerging cause of illnesses in tropical regions, according to a recent study. Previous outbreaks have been linked to cashew cheese, fish, seafood, sprouts and kratom. Most of the foods associated with Salmonella Weltevreden outbreaks in the U.S. were imported.
