UPDATE: Cucumbers Linked to Salmonella Outbreak

In June 2024, health officials began investigating a Salmonella outbreak linked to cucumbers.

As of June 4, at least 162 people in 25 states and Washington D.C. have been infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Africana. At least 54 people were hospitalized since the outbreak began in March 2024, according to the CDC Outbreak Investigation.

Another outbreak involving Salmonella Braenderup strain may also be linked to cucumbers, although this is still under investigation. Another 158 illnesses have been reported in 23 states.

Fresh Start Produce Recalls Cucumbers for Salmonella Risk

In June 2024, health officials warned people not to eat fresh whole cucumbers that were recalled by Fresh Start Produce Sales Inc. due to a risk of Salmonella contamination.

The Florida-based company sold bulk boxes of cucumbers between May 17 and May 21, 2024 to retail distribution centers, wholesalers, and food service distributors in 14 states.

The states include Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

The FDA is currently investigating whether the recalled cucumbers are part of an outbreak of unknown origin involving 141 illnesses with the Salmonella Africana strain.

2015 Outbreak: Cucumbers Linked to 838 Illnesses

As of November 19, 2015, a total of 838 infections were reported in 38 states, including 165 people who were hospitalized and four people who died, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The outbreak strain was identified as Salmonella Poona.

The pole-grown garden cucumbers were grown in northern Mexico by Rancho Don Juanito. They were distributed in the United States by San Diego-based Andrew & Williamson Fresh Produce under the “Limited Edition” brand from August 1 through September 3, 2015. However, illnesses were reported as early as July 3, 2015.

Andrew & Williamson Fresh Produce distributed produce to many major grocery stores, such as Safeway, Kroger, HEB, and Walmart. Their products are also used in dishes at Red Lobster and Olive Garden restaurants.

Unfortunately, it is unlikely that cucumbers purchased at the grocery store will have any identifying brand information. Therefore, consumers who are concerned must contact their grocery store to find out if they purchased the recalled cucumbers.

On September 4, Andrew & Williamson Fresh Produce announced a recall for cucumbers that were sold under the “Limited Edition” brand-name from August 1 through September 3, 2015.

On September 11, Custom Produce recalled for cucumbers that may be contaminated with Salmonella. The “slicer” or “American” style cucumbers were grown in northern Baja Mexico and sold under the “Fat Boy®”-brand.

Salmonella Food Poisoning

Salmonella infection is one of the most common types of food poisoning. It causes inflammation of the lining of the small intestines when you swallow food or water that contains the Salmonella bacteria.

Symptoms of Salmonella infection include:

  • Abdominal pain or cramps
  • Fever
  • Diarrhea (may be bloody)
  • Muscle pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
