August 12, 2020 — Costco has announced a recall for certain bags of Kirkland Signature frozen shrimp due to a risk of Salmonella.
The recall involves frozen 2-pound bags of Kirkland Signature Cooked, Peeled and Deveined Tail-On Shrimps (31/40 shrimp per pound or 21/25 shrimp per pound) and Tail-Off Shrimps (50/70 shrimps per pound).
For specific product codes and and a list of other affected products in the recall, see the Costco recall notice.
The shrimp was sold nationwide from late February 2020 to mid-May 2020, and distributed by Kader Exports.
No illnesses were reported. The cooked shrimp was tested by the FDA and found to be contaminated with Salmonella. The probable root cause is cross-contamination, according to Kader Exports.
Consumers who bought the recalled shrimp can return the product to Costco for a full refund.
