The FDA and CDC have announced another Salmonella outbreak, this time linked to raw flour. This Salmonella Flour Outbreak currently has affected 12 people in 11 states. Three of which have been hospitalized. Illnesses started on dates ranging from December 6, 2022, to February 13, 2023.


The true number of sick people in this outbreak is likely much higher than the number reported, and the outbreak may not be limited to the states with known illnesses.

Most people reported eating raw dough or batter made with flour before they got sick. Flour was the only common ingredient in the raw dough or batter people reported eating. Investigators are working to identify a specific brand of flour linked to illnesses.
