February 18, 2020: CDC Provides Final Update Of Salmonella Cut Fruit Outbreak Investigation

Salmonella Cut Fruit Outbreak Update – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) provided its final update of the investigation into a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Javiana infections. The Salmonella Cut Fruit Outbreak has been linked to cut fruit produced by Tailor Cut Produce, of North Brunswick, New Jersey. The CDC has indicated that as of February 18, 2020, this outbreak appears to be over. 

CDC Final Update Of Salmonella Cut Fruit Outbreak

Multiple public health agencies including the CDC, FDA, and public health and regulatory officials in several states investigated this multistate Salmonella Cut Fruit Outbreak.

The following information was provided by the CDC in its final update:

  • As of February 18, 2020, the multistate Salmonella outbreak linked to Tailor Cut Produce cut fruit appears to be over.
  • 165 people were infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Javiana across 14 states as follows: California (1), Colorado (1), Connecticut (1), Delaware (49), Florida (1), Georgia (1), Illinois (1), Massachusetts (1), Minnesota (1), New Jersey (50), New York (7), Pennsylvania (49), Virginia (1), and Washington (1).
  • Illness onset dates ranged from November 7, 2019 to January 11, 2020.
  • 73 hospitalizations were reported. No deaths were reported.
  • Epidemiologic and traceback evidence indicated that cut fruit produced by Tailor Cut Produce of North Brunswick, New Jersey, was a likely source of this outbreak.
  • On December 7, 2019, Tailor Cut Produce recalled its Fruit Luau cut fruit mix as well as cut honeydew melon, cut cantaloupe, and cut pineapple products because they had the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria.

The CDC also reminded consumers, restaurants, and retailers to choose and handle fruit safely to help prevent foodborne illness. The CDC provided the following food safety tips:

  • Throw away fruit that is spoiled or has been recalled.
  • Wash your hands, kitchen utensils, and food preparation surfaces, including cutting boards and countertops, before and after handling fruit.
  • Wash fruit before eating, cutting, or cooking.
    • Wash or scrub fruit under running water—even if you do not plan to eat the peel—so dirt and germs on the surface do not get inside when you cut.
  • Separate fruit from other foods that could contaminate it, such as raw meat and seafood.
  • Refrigerate fruit that you have cut up, peeled, or cooked within 2 hours. Refrigerate within 1 hour if the temperature outside is above 90°F. Chill it at 40°F or below in a clean container.

December 7, 2019: New Jersey Company Issues Cut Fruit Recall For Potential Salmonella Contamination

New Jersey Cut Fruit Recall Announced – Tailor Cut Produce of North Brunswick, NJ, has issued a recall for its Fruit Luau mix, which contains cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, and grapes, as well as cut honeydew, cut cantaloupe and cut pineapple because these products may be contaminated with the foodborne pathogen, Salmonella. Salmonella are a group of bacteria that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. 

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that most people infected with Salmonella will develop symptoms 12 to 72 hours after infection. The illness, referred to as salmonellosis, usually lasts four to seven days.  Most people with salmonellosis develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. More severe cases of salmonellosis may include a high fever, aches, headaches, lethargy, a rash, blood in the urine or stool, and in some cases may be fatal.

Tailor Cut Fruit Recall Information

The company reports that the recalled fruit products were distributed in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Delaware between November 15 and December 1, 2019.

The product comes in 2/1 gallon cases with the date of production stamped on the side.

FDA and Pennsylvania Department of Health Investigation

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) are investigating an outbreak of illnesses caused by Salmonella Javiana in Pennsylvania.  According to both agencies, epidemiologic and trace-back evidence indicate that fruit mix with cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, and grapes from Tailor Cut Produce of North Brunswick, New Jersey, are a potential source of this outbreak. 

The DOH is investigating 31 laboratory-confirmed illnesses of Salmonella at four healthcare facilities in southeast Pennsylvania. Salmonella Javiana has been identified among cases at three of the four facilities. According to the DOH, epidemiologic evidence indicates that this fruit mix is a potential source of the Salmonella illnesses. The state’s review of invoices shows that a common food eaten by many case patients was the fruit mix with cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, and grapes from Tailor Cut Produce.

Distributors who have purchased the cut fruit products dated November 15 – December 1 are urged to quarantine the recalled product.  Recalled food products should not be distributed, sold, or served.  Recalled food products should not be eaten.
