The FDA, CDC, and state and local partners investigated a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Litchfield infections linked to fresh, raw salmon supplied to restaurants in California and Arizona by Mariscos Bahia, Inc. As of December 14, 2022, the CDC announced that the outbreak is over. CDC reports a total of 39 illnesses in four states. The last illness onset was October 23, 2022. The CDC reported that WGS of samples collected in Mariscos Bahia, Inc., Pico Rivera, CA facility yielded multiple positive environmental samples. Salmonella detected in at least one of the swabs from the facility matched the strain causing illnesses in this outbreak. The presence of Salmonella in the processing environment also indicated that additional types of fish processed in the same area of the facility could have been contaminated. On October 20, 2022, Mariscos Bahia, Inc., Pico Rivera, CA, initiated a voluntary recall. Recalled products included fresh, raw salmon and all other types of fresh fish processed in the same area as the salmon, including fresh, raw halibut, Chilean seabass, tuna, and swordfish.
