In April 2021, the CDC, FDA, and their local partners investigated a multi-state outbreak of Salmonella and traced it back to Jule's cashew brie contaminated with Salmonella. The product was recalled on April 22, 2021. The CDC announced that as of July 7, 2021, this outbreak is over. This outbreak included people infected with one of four Salmonella serotypes: Chester, Duisburg, Typhimurium, and Urbana. A total of 20 sick people were reported from four states (California (15), Florida (2), Maryland (1), and Tennessee (2)). Illnesses started on dates ranging from December 11, 2020, to May 9, 2021. Five people were hospitalized, and no deaths were reported. WGS results showed that samples of Jule's truffle cashew brie collected in California and Tennessee were contaminated with Salmonella. FDA and California Department of Public Health inspectors found the outbreak strain of Salmonella Urbana in samples of raw cashews. The same lot of cashews was used to make the product. @ https://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/duisburg-04-21/index.html#:~:text=Investigators%20found%20an%20outbreak%20strain%20of%20Salmonella%20in%20Jule's%20truffle%20cashew%20brie.&text=Do%20not%20eat%20any%20recalled,soapy%20water%20or%20a%20dishwasher
