Irvington Crabmeat Listeria Recall

Irvington Seafood of Irvington, AL has issued a Listeria recall for jumbo, lump, finger, and claw crabmeat. The recalled products were sent to distributors in Alabama and Mississippi and then to seafood markets and restaurants.

The recalled crabmeat was sold in 1-pound tubs marked with the license number AL 111-C company name “Irvington Seafood.”

On May 17, 2024, the company received notice that crabmeat batch #133 produced on May 12, 2024, tested positive for Listeria.

The 94 samples submitted for testing included:

  • 23 samples of jumbo,
  • 24 samples of lump
  • 24 samples of fingers
  • 23 samples of claw meat

Of those, 12 samples of claw meat, and two samples of fingers were positive for Listeria.

Irvington Seafood said it was not aware of any illnesses associated with the recalled crabmeat. The company has suspended production while the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) investigates the source of the contamination.

Symptoms of a Listeria Infection

Symptoms of a Listeria infection usually develop within 24 hours of exposure but sometimes they can take as long as 70 days to appear. They include:

  • High fever, stiff neck, and other muscle aches
  • Severe headache, loss of balance, confusion, and convulsions
  • Upset stomach and diarrhea

People who are over 65, people with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women are at high risk. Among pregnant women, Listeria infections can cause miscarriage or stillbirth even if the expectant mother only experiences mild Listeria symptoms.
