CORE identified pre-cooked shrimp as the source for the Salmonella Weltevreden outbreak reported in CORE last week. The information collected so far indicates that pre-cooked shrimp is the likely source of this outbreak. However, it appears that the product lots linked to outbreak illnesses are past their shelf life and are no longer available for sale. The most recent illness occurred in late April 2021. FDA continues to investigate, and if FDA’s outbreak investigation results in specific, actionable steps for consumers to protect themselves, a public health advisory will be issued. Patients in the new Salmonella Weltevreden outbreak live in Nevada and Arizona. Health officials do not rule the possibility that there may be people in other states who have been infected. @ https://www.fda.gov/food/outbreaks-foodborne-illness/investigations-foodborne-illness-outbreaks?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
