Update on the outbreak investigation of Salmonella in onions (October 2023)

The FDA reported on the recall of Gills onions (Oxnard, California), diced yellow onions, diced onions & celery, and diced mirepoix red onions with use date in August 2023 due to Salmonella Thompson. The recalled onions were sold to food services and institutions nationwide and in Canada. In the US, the product was sold to retailers in Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. Epidemiological data collected by the CDC indicates that 14 of 19 cases with information available reported exposure to fresh diced onions before becoming ill. Based on traceback data collected by the FDA, the FDA determined that onions processed at Gills Onions were available at points of service where people ate before becoming ill. The investigation is ongoing to determine the source of contamination and whether additional products are linked to illnesses. @ https://www.fda.gov/food/alerts-advisories-safety-information/outbreak-investigation-salmonella-onions-october-2023?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
