SARASOTA, Fla. -- A Suncoast man says a package of shrimp he recently purchased at the Sarasota Costco was labelled as a product of the U.S.A., but found out otherwise once he opened it.

Rich Redenour contacted ABC 7 this week, saying that he purchased a 4-pound bag of frozen shrimp this weekend labeled as "Wild Gulf Prawns -- Product of U.S.A."


However, the inside packaging had the shrimp marked as "Product of Vietnam; farm raised".


Rich returned to Costco and was told by a manager that they're not sure how the mistake happened.  He received a refund on the shrimp.
