The Ministry of Health issued a public advisory today on the recall of Waitrose frozen seafood sold exclusively at The Supermart on Front Street in Hamilton.

A spokesperson said the “product may be contaminated with salmonella”.

“This is a voluntary recall because the product may be contaminated with salmonella, which could cause illness if consumed. Symptoms caused by salmonella usually include fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps.

“Product details: Waitrose & Partners Essential Frozen Seafood Selection, (King prawns, mussels and squid rings Frozen) – 250g. All ‘best before’ dates up to and including end January 2022.

“The product was shipped to Bermuda and sold between September to December 2020. An additional two cases of the product came in January. None of the January shipment was sold, and they have all been taken off the shelf,” the spokesperson added.

“If consumers have purchased any of the product indicated above, they should return it to the Supermart for a full refund or exchange.”
