The St. Joseph County Health Department is investigating the death of a South Bend Indiana man related to recently recalled shrimp from Martin’s Super Markets. On February 17, Memorial Hospital alerted the county health department it had a patient with Vibrio fulvialsis.
Vibrio fulvialsis is found naturally in many seafoods including shrimp.
The recalled product is Harvest of the Sea brand Quick and Fit Raw, Tail On, Peeled and Cleaned 21 to 25 count, 16-ounce frozen shrimp. The health department tested a second bag of this shrimp that was in that man’s freezer and determined it also carried Vibrio fulvialsis.
