In a follow-up on the Salmonella Oranienburg outbreak in the US, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has linked the outbreak to onions.
Epidemiologic and traceback data show that illnesses in this outbreak are linked to whole red, white, and yellow onions distributed by ProSource Inc. that were imported from Chihuahua, Mexico. Investigators are working to determine if other onions or suppliers are linked to this outbreak.
These onions were sold to restaurants and grocery stores throughout the United States.
ProSource Inc. indicated onions were last imported on August 27, but these imported onions can last up to three months in storage and may still be in homes and businesses.
On Oct. 20, ProSource Produce LLC of Hailey, Idaho, voluntarily recalled whole raw onions (red, yellow, and white) shipped from Chihuahua, Mexico, between July 1, 2021, and August 31, 2021,
As of October 18, 2021, 652 people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Oranienburg have been reported from 37 states. 129 people required hospitalization for their illness and no deaths were reported.
