The CDC continues to investigate a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Oranienburg infections. The update of September 24 indicates that there are 279 ill people in 29 states. While the investigation has not yet identified a food linked to illness, the outbreak strain of Salmonella Oranienburg was found in a sample taken from a takeout condiment cup containing cilantro and lime. The sick person reported that the condiment container also contained onions, but none were left in the cup when it was tested. However, cilantro seems like the most likely source of the contamination. The actual number of sick people in an outbreak is likely much higher than the number reported, and the outbreak may not be limited to the states with known illnesses. This is because many people recover without medical care and are not tested for Salmonella. @ https://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/oranienburg-09-21/details.html
