Outbreak of Salmonella Enteritidis in peaches- the continued spread

The FDA, CDC, and state and local partners are investigating an ongoing multistate outbreak of Salmonella Enteritidis linked to peaches packed or supplied by Prima Wawona or Wawona Packing Company. CDC reports that epidemiologic evidence indicates that peaches are the likely source of this outbreak. As of August 19, 2020, CDC is reporting a total of 68 cases across nine states. Prima Wawona voluntarily recalled bagged Wawona-brand peaches distributed from June 1, 2020, until August 19, 2020, in multiple states. On August 22, 2020, Prima Wawona expanded their recall to include bagged and bulk, or loose, peaches that they supplied to retailers nationwide. On August 23, 2020, the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency issued advisories reporting cases in Canada associated with this outbreak and warning consumers to avoid eating recalled Prima Wawona peaches. Bagged and loose peaches were distributed in many markets such as Aldi, Kroger, Target, Food Lion, Walmart, and Wegmans. @ https://www.fda.gov/food/outbreaks-foodborne-illness/outbreak-investigation-salmonella-enteritidis-peaches-august-2020?utm_campaign=Outbreak_Peaches_08242020&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua
