Virginia seafood lovers, beware: There's been a recall on shrimp!

Shrimp lovers in Virginia may have to lay off their favorite food for a while. According to CBS News, the Kroger Company (which also happens to be the largest grocery chain in the United States) has issued a shrimp recall in northwestern Virginia, Michigan, and central and northwest Ohio.

So what's wrong with them? The shrimp sold by Kroger's, Fry's, King Soopers, and Smith grocery stores (all belonging to the Kroger Company) are potentially raw or undercooked, despite their labels saying that they're cooked.

The recall applies to shrimp products with these product codes:

  • Peeled Cooked Shrimp 26/30 UPC 40401-370681
  • Sand Bar Peeled/ Cooked Shrimp 26/30 CPTO UPC 11110-64115
  • Shrimp 26/30 Cooked Service Case UPC 89461-XXXXX
  • Shrimp Cocktail 26/30 UPC 99479-5XXXX

  • Shrimp Cooked Tail-On Frozen Service Case UPC 89439-XXXXX
  • Shrimp Grab & Go Service Case UPC 69447-XXXXX
