If you’re planning on serving a platter of shrimp cocktail at your New Years Eve party, you might want to double check where your shrimp is coming from. Earlier this week, Kroger Co. issued a recall of “nine different kinds of cooked shrimp that actually is raw or under-cooked, raising the risk of food-borne illness.” The affected shrimp was distributed to Kroger stores throughout Ohio, Virginia, and Michigan. Additionally, the shrimp may also be found at “KingSoopers, Frys and Smiths stores.”
