FDA testing indicates that these products have tested positive for listeria, a dangerous foodborne pathogen that causes symptoms including headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions.

The likely cause for this recall is cross contamination, FDA said. Kader Exports has eliminated the source of contamination and taken steps to avoid future problems.

If you purchased any shrimp that is affected by this recall, you should not eat it, and either throw it away or return it to the point of purchase for a refund.

Anyone concerned about a potential food poisoning illness from shrimp should contact their healthcare provider immediately.
