The Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority (CAFIA) warns consumers against consumption of foodstuff Krevety vannamei celé syrové 30/40 (Shrimps – whole and raw), deeply frozen product, packaged à 300 g, lot number: X1692012BUXX, best before date by: 12/2021, country of origin: Ecuador, seller: mrazeneryby.cz s.r.o., Jabloňová 10, 10600, Praha Záběhlice, CR.

Laboratory analysis confirmed presence of bacteria Vibrio paraheamolyticus in the foodstuff in question. This bacteria may cause poisoning manifesting itself by very serious digestive complications. With regard to the mentioned facts, the foodstuff is unsuitable for human consumption and the inspectors ordered immediate withdrawal from the retail network.

The inspectors took the sample at the premises of company mrazeneryby.cz s.r.o., Breitcetlova 6, 198 00 Praha 14 – Černý Most. As regards this shop, the inspectors had already detected sale of other lot of frozen shrimps with expired use by date, which was the reason why that foodstuff had been banned on the spot.

From the reason of the detected violation of legislation, CAFIA will initiate an administrative procedure on imposition of a fine with the operator of the shop.

CAFIA strongly recommends all consumers who may have the food lot in question at home that they do not eat it.
