Aldi is recalling frozen shrimp sold under the Golden Seafood brand over fears it contains vibrio vulnificus, a flesh-eating bacteria.

The recall was issued in coordination with the French government on 24 June after vibrio was found in one lot of 400-gram bags of the shrimp sold between 18 March and 5 June 2024. The affected bags of shrimp have a sell-by date of 22 October 2025 and a lot number of VN 089 V 101NTSF17 ALDIFR 23057B.

The shrimp was sold in Aldi stores in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Centre-Val de Loire, Grand-Est, Hauts-de-France, Ile-de-France, Normandie, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, Occitanie, and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'azur, according to government recall website Rappel Conso.

Consumers who purchased the product are being asked to return it to the supermarket for a refund.

Vibrio, which can infect shellfish grown in warm, salty waters, can cause gastrointestinal issues in healthy people and more severe health consequences in the infirm, including sepsis and death. People infected with vibriosis most frequently begin experiencing symptoms 12 to 72 hours after consuming raw or undercooked seafood, though symptoms may rise as far out as a week after ingestion.

Two other seafood products were also the subject of recent recalls.

A salmon steak with sorrel sauce and basmati rice, sold by the Cooperative U brand, was recalled on 25 June due to an incorrect sell-by date, and 15-pack bags of mussels sold under the Sa Verrine brand were recalled on 26 June due to potential contamination from diarrheal marine biotoxins.
