Kader Exports is recalling some shrimp products due to potential salmonella contamination, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
Frozen, peeled and ripe shrimp are sold at 1 lbs, 1.5 lbs. and 2 lbs. FDA said.
Shrimp are distributed nationwide from late February to mid-May this year. According to the FDA, it is believed that most, if not all, of the shrimp were consumed and any remaining shrimp were detained for further evaluation.

As of Wednesday, there were no reports of any disease related to the distribution of shrimp, the FDA wrote. However, the FDA says it has tested the cooked shrimp and found it contains salmonella.
Kader Exports has agreed to voluntarily destroy cooked shrimp contaminated with salmonella, the FDA said, adding that the “probable root cause” of the recall is due to cross-contamination.
“The company has eliminated the source of the pollution and precautionary steps have been taken,” the FDA wrote.

Salmonella infections often lead to stomach cramps, fever, and diarrhea. While most people recover without treatment, sometimes serious illness cases require hospitalization because the infection can spread from the intestine into the bloodstream and then to other parts of the body.
