(Lewis K, Vasser M, Garman K, et al. Notes from the Field: Multistate, Multiserotype Outbreak of Salmonella Infections Linked to Cashew Brie — United States, 2021. MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep 2023;72:589–590.) On March 30, 2021, the Tennessee Department of Health identified two Salmonella Duisburg isolates. The specimens containing the isolates were from two patients who reported eating the same brand of cashew brie at the same restaurant. They identified three additional Salmonella isolates, two from patients in California and one in Florida, closely related genetically to the Tennessee isolates. Outbreak strains of S. Chester, S. Typhimurium, and S. Urbana were included in the investigation. Overall, 20 cases were identified in four states: California (seven S. Typhimurium, three S. Chester, three S. Urbana, two S. Duisburg), Florida (one S. Chester, one S. Duisburg), Maryland (one S. Urbana), and Tennessee (two S. Duisburg). Twenty-three (64%) samples yielded 51 Salmonella isolates, including 19 (95%) of 20 retail samples and four (25%) of 16 samples collected from the production facility. @
