Woolworths Cooked and Peeled Cocktail Prawns 1kg have been recalled
Woolworths prawns have been urgently recalled days out from Christmas amid fears of contamination.
The recall for the Woolworths branded Cooked and Peeled Cocktail Prawns was issued on Wednesday – just two days before December 25.
The popular Christmas Day delicacy has been on the shelves at Woolworths stores in Victoria, South Australia, the Northern Territory and Western Australia.
The prawns were also available to buy at Woolworths Metro stores in Victoria.
The recall was released following fears the prawns could be subject to ‘potential microbial contamination’.
‘Food products with potential microbial contamination may cause illness if consumed,’ the recall reads.
The impacted prawns – which come in a 1kg bag – have a best before date of February 21, 2022.
Woolworths customers who purchased the prawns are urged to return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund.
Anyone concerned about their health should seek medical advice.
