Thai peanut sauce, curry sauce recalled over undeclared shrimp allergen: FDA

Florida-based Delicae Gourmet LLC is issuing the recall

Beware, shrimp allergy sufferers: A company is issuing a voluntary recall of some sauces over undeclared shrimp allergens, which can cause a serious or even life-threatening allergic reaction in those who have allergies or sensitivities to shrimp.

Florida-based Delicae Gourmet LLC in a recall notice posted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) website earlier this week said its Thai Peanut Sauce, Panang Curry Sauce, and Spicy Red Curry Sauce are being called back.

Consumers who purchased the recalled products can return them to the place of purchase for a refund, the company said.  (iStock)

The products, which are packed in 12 oz. glass bottles with green shrink-wrap on the necks, were distributed to retail stores across various states, including Springfield, Mo; Crystal Lake, Ill.; Palisade, Co.; Colorado Springs, Co.; Long Lake, N.Y.; Long Grove, Ill.; Sheridan, Wyo.; Venice, Fla; Pittsburgh, Pa.; Nassawadox, Va.

“The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing shrimp was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of the shrimp. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes,” according to the recall notice, which noted that no illnesses related to affected products have been reported to date.
