An urgent recall has been issued for cocktail prawns sold in Woolworths across four states and territories over a potential contamination.

The Woolworths branded Cooked and Peeled Cocktail Prawns with a best before date of February 21, 2022 are affected by the recall.

Food Standards Australia and New Zealand said they were sold at Woolworths in Victoria, South Australia, Northern Territory and Western Australia.

They were also sold at Woolworths Metro stores in Victoria.

The recall is due to a potential microbial contamination which can cause illness if consumed.
