The CDC and FDA are investigating an outbreak of Salmonella Thompson in Seafood

The FDA reported that on 10/8/2021, Northeast Seafood Products (Denver, CO) recalled seafood products that were processed in their facility because they could be contaminated with Salmonella. FDA's traceback investigation identified Northeast Seafood Products, Inc. as a common distributor among illness subclusters.  The items being recalled are: Haddock, Monkfish, Bone-in Trout, Grouper, Red Snapper, Red Rock Cod, Ocean Perch, Pacific Cod, Halibut, Coho Salmon, Atlantic Salmon Portions, Lane Snapper, Tilapia, All Natural Salmon Fillet, Pacific Sole, and Farm Raised Striped Bass. These items were distributed in Colorado from May 2021 to October 7, 2021 to restaurants and Albertsons, Safeway, and Sprout's supermarkets. The recalled items would have sold out of their fresh seafood cases. The recall is the result of several positive samples revealed during an FDA inspection. FDA and CDC have reported that these positive samples are linked to an outbreak of Salmonella illness. A total of 102 got sick, 10 were hospitalized, and no death has been reported. States with Cases: AZ (1), CO (82), CT (1), IA (1), MN (2), MO (1), NE (2), NJ (2), PA (1), TX (2), VA (2), WA (2), WI (2), WY (2). CDC's analysis of epidemiological information indicates that seafood is the leading hypothesis for the cause of illnesses linked to this outbreak. @
