Aqua Star Shrimp Appetizers Recalled

Aqua Star announced on Friday that that it is recalling 13.5-ounce packages of its Shrimp Appetizers after it failed to disclose that the product may contain peanuts.

So far, one illness has been reported, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Consumers who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction.

However, none of the peanuts in the Seattle company’s Shrimp Appetizers are associated with the nationwide recall of salmonella-tainted peanut butter. The salmonella outbreak has been blamed for at least eight deaths and 575 illnesses in 43 states, and more than 1,550 products have been recalled.

The product was distributed to supermarkets nationwide and marked with the codes 010 08254, 010 08255, 010 08256, 010 08257, 010 08282 and 010 08283.
