The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports investigating a multistate outbreak of Listeria infections.
Two people infected with the outbreak strain of Listeria have been reported, one from Michigan and one from Nevada. Both have been hospitalized, and no deaths have been reported.
Interviews with sick people and laboratory findings show that enoki mushrooms contaminated with Listeria are making people sick.
Both sick people reported eating enoki mushrooms or eating at restaurants with menu items containing enoki mushrooms.
The outbreak strain was previously found in one sample of enoki mushrooms collected by FDA. However, to date, the firm associated with this sample has not been identified as a potential source of enoki mushrooms in this outbreak.
Investigators are working to identify specific brands of enoki mushrooms that may be contaminated with the outbreak strain of Listeria.
