They warn of another Salmonella outbreak on salami sticks

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, for its abbreviation in English) warned of another Salmonella outbreak, this time linked to salami sticks found in the supermarket chain Trader Jose.

Unlike the outbreak this week with onions imported from Mexico, more than 650 were affected in 37 states, with one involving the Citerio brand salami sticks affecting only 20 in eight states, the federal agency said.

A total of 132 hospitalized two infections have not yet been caused by the bacterium “Salmonella ornitenburg”.

Both salami of the above brand can be found in other stores, as well as white, red or yellow onions that the agency recommends to keep at home without labeling.

Investigators determined that there was evidence of infection in whole red, white and yellow onions imported from Chihuahua and distributed by Prosource Inc. in the United States, although the company is still investigating whether onions were involved from other suppliers.

Salmonellosis can cause fever, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain, although in some cases it can cause a serious infection that spreads from the intestines to the bloodstream and from there to other parts of the body, and if left untreated it can be dangerous with antibiotics.
