Outbreak of Listeria Infections Linked to Deli-Sliced Meats and Cheeses

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 8 people infected with the outbreak strain of Listeria monocytogenes have been reported in 4 states (Michigan, Pennsylvania, New-Jersey, and New-York). All 8 people have been hospitalized, and one death has been reported from Michigan. Epidemiological data indicate that meats and cheeses sliced at deli counters might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes and could make people sick. WGS performed on Listeria isolated from ill people in this outbreak showed that they are closely related genetically. The outbreak strain has been identified in samples taken from meat sliced at a deli and from deli counters in multiple stores. The CDC did not identify a single, common supplier of deli products. The outbreak strain has been identified in samples taken from deli products and deli counters in multiple locations. @ https://www.cdc.gov/listeria/outbreaks/deliproducts-04-19/index.html" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.cdc.gov/listeria/outbreaks/deliproducts-04-19/index.html
