What You Should Do:
- Do not eat recalled seafood products. Throw them away or return them to the store.
- If you don’t know whether the seafood you bought from an Albertsons, Safeway, or Sprouts grocery store in Colorado is from Northeast Seafood Products, don’t eat it. Throw it away.
- Wash surfaces and containers that may have touched the recalled product using hot soapy water or a dishwasher.
- In general, people who are at higher risk for serious foodborne illness should not eat any raw fish or raw shellfish. Cook seafood properly to kill harmful germs.
- Contact a healthcare provider if you have severe Salmonella symptoms.
Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramping 6 hours to 6 days after eating contaminated food.
- The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most people recover without treatment.
- In some people, the illness may be so severe that the patient is hospitalized. Salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the bloodstream and then to other parts of the body.
- Children younger than 5, adults 65 and older, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have severe illness.
So far no deaths have been reported in connection with the seafood.
