Three grocery chains are recalling certain frozen, cooked shrimp after testing revealed Listeria monocytogenes.

Winn-Dixie, Fresco y Más, and Harveys Supermarkets stores recalled their Fisherman’s Wharf brand “Jumbo Cooked Shrimp” according to company officials with the chains’ parent company, SoutheasternGrocers.

Because of the long shelf life of the product, which reaches into 2023, there is concern that consumers may have the product in their home freezers.

The recalled frozen shrimp is packaged in plastic bags with 16-20 pieces in each bag. The 16-ounce bags are marked with the UPC number 2114003262 and a best-by date of April 5, 2023. 

Consumers are advised to not use the recalled shrimp and to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for a refund.
