June 4, 2010 – Teaneck, N.J. Eastern Fish
is alerting consumers that Hannaford Supermarkets and Bloom brands of
frozen raw extra jumbo (16/20) shrimp in 16 oz packages, as well as
these brands of shrimp from the full-service seafood cases, labeled as
product of Mexico, sold May 4 through June 4 at Hannaford Supermarkets
and sold April 8 through June 4 at Bloom grocery stores, are subject to a
voluntary recall because the products may contain undeclared sulfites.
People who have an allergy or sensitivity to sulfites risk an allergic
reaction if they consume these products.
To date, the company has received no reports of adverse reaction
associated with these products. Customers are asked to return any
Hannaford or Bloom brands of frozen 16/20 shrimp products to their store
for a full refund if the Hannaford or Bloom frozen extra jumbo shrimp
product of Mexico were purchased from Hannaford Supermarkets or Bloom

These products were distributed to Hannaford stores and to independent
stores serviced by Hannaford in New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire,
Vermont and Maine, and to Bloom stores in North Carolina, South
Carolina, Virginia and Maryland.
The recall was initiated after Bloom was notified by the North Carolina
Department of Agriculture that test results from routine product
sampling indicated the presence of sulfites in the shrimp. Eastern Fish
is cooperating fully with the FDA.

They could suffer an allergic reaction personal injury.
