Chicken Salad Salmonella Outbreak
The outbreak of Salmonella from chicken salad has sickened another 105 people, bringing the total number of illnesses to 170 people in 7 states, since the last announcement from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on February 22.
The following case count was reported on February 22, 2018: Illinois (9), Indiana (1), Iowa (149), Minnesota (3), Nebraska (5), South Dakota (2), and Texas (1) with illnesses beginning from January 4, 2018 to February 9, 2018.
Out of the 170 victims, 62 were hospitalized with severe food poisoning. No deaths have been reported. The ages range from 7 to 89 years.
The CDC interviewed 159 people who were sickened with Salmonella and reported that 131 (82%) said they ate chicken salad from a Fareway grocery store before developing symptoms.
“CDC recommends that people do not eat recalled chicken salad. Throw it away or return it to the place of purchase. This investigation is ongoing and we will provide updates when more information is available.”
Chicken Salad Recalled for Salmonella Risk
Triple T Specialty Meats Inc. recalled 20,630 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken salad on February 21, 2018.
The products were produced from January 2 to February 7, 2018. They were recalled due to possible contamination with the bacteria Salmonella Typhimurium, according to the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS).
All Fareway grocery stores stopped selling Triple T chicken salad on February 9, and the company says it will not re-stock the product until “we are certain the problem has unquestionably been resolved.”
Salmonella Food Poisoning
Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause severe and sometimes fatal food poisoning. The symptoms usually appear within 12 to 72 hours of eating contaminated food, and last for 4 to 7 days.
The symptoms of food poisoning with Salmonella may include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever. Most healthy people recover without treatment, but some people develop severe diarrhea and/or vomiting that causes life-threatening complications like dehydration.
