CORE Outbreak Investigation update July 3, 2024

CORE update of July 3, 2024: the CORE list of outbreaks and adverse events includes five activities. The outbreak of Salmonella Typhimurium illnesses (ref #1234) was linked to an unidentified product, and the case count increased from 53 to 80. The advisory has been updated to include additional illnesses for the investigation of illnesses (ref #1233) linked to Diamond Shruumz-brand Chocolate Bars, Cones, and Gummies. On June 27, 2024, Prophet Premium Blends, LLC of Santa Ana, CA, initiated a recall of all flavors of Diamond Shruumz-brand products. For the outbreak of Salmonella Africana and Salmonella Braenderup illnesses (ref #1227), the FDA has updated the advisory. While originally reported as two separate outbreaks, the CDC and FDA combined these outbreak investigations. Laboratory, epidemiological, and traceback data have determined that cucumbers from Bedner Growers, Inc., of Boynton Beach, Florida, are a likely source of illnesses in this outbreak; however, this single grower does not account for all the illnesses in this outbreak. Additional information is available in the advisory. @
