Fisherman’s Pride Processors Inc., a Vernon, California-based unit of the Red Chamber Group doing business as Neptune Foods, is recalling 100 bags of frozen Schwan’s Garlic Herb Shrimp with date code 4A924608xx-B1 due to undeclared milk and soy content. People who have allergic or sensitivity to these ingredients run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction should the product be consumed.
The recalled shellfish is distributed in white polyethylene bags containing 16 ounces (453 grams) of product and imprinted with a red graphic, photo of plated shrimp, the Schwan’s logo, the product name and text informing buyers that the tender tail-off shrimp is glazed in a garlic and herb sauce. Imprinted on the reverse side of the bag is code #567 on the top left corner, UPC code 052008 and Product Identification code 4A924608xx-B1.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that a relatively small quantity of the product was found in cases labeled Schwan’s Shrimp Scampi #530. Subsequent investigation found packaging of Schwan’s Garlic Herb Shrimp #567 was used to package Schwan’s Shrimp Scampi #530.
Marshall, Minnesota-headquartered Schwan’s may have distributed the recalled product in the continental United States through the company’s home delivery network. The shrimp was not sold in retail stores, and to date, there have been no reported injuries or illness.
Consumers who have purchased the Schwan’s Garlic Herb Shrimp #567 Product Identification code 4A924608xx-B1 product are urged to return it to Schwan’s for a full refund. Questions may be put to Fisherman’s Pride Processors by telephoning +1 844-417-9933 from 7am-4pm Pacific Standard Time.
