The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Thompson infections linked to seafood.
To date, 102 people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Thompson have been reported from 14 states. The majority of sick people are either Colorado residents (82) or reported traveling to Colorado in the week before they got sick. Only two people did not report travel to Colorado in the week before they got sick.

Seafood types include Haddock, Monkfish, Bone-in Trout, Grouper, Red Snapper, Red Rock Cod, Ocean Perch, Pacific Cod, Halibut, Coho Salmon, Atlantic Salmon Portions, Lane Snapper, Tilapia, All Natural Salmon Fillet, Pacific Sole, and Farm Raised Striped Bass.
