Outbreak of Multidrug-Resistant Salmonella Infections Linked to Raw Turkey Products

CDC and public health and regulatory officials in several states are investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Reading linked to raw turkey products. As of July 11, 2018, 90 people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Reading have been reported from 26 states. Forty people have been hospitalized, and no deaths have been reported. The outbreak strain of Salmonella Reading has been identified in samples from raw ground turkey for pets, from raw turkey products from 19 slaughter and 6 processing establishments, and from live turkeys from several states. WGS showed that the Salmonella strain from these samples is closely related genetically to the Salmonella strain from ill people. This result provides more evidence that people in this outbreak got sick from preparing raw turkey products. Antibiotic resistance was not identified in 68 isolates from 28 ill people and 40 food and animal samples. However, 33 isolates from ill people and 49 isolates from food and animal samples contained genes for resistance to all or some of the following antibiotics: ampicillin, streptomycin, sulfamethoxazole, tetracycline, gentamicin, and kanamycin. @ https://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/reading-07-18/index.html" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/reading-07-18/index.html
