July 31, 2020: Red Onions Salmonella Newport Outbreak Investigation

Red Onions Salmonella Newport Outbreak News – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are working with state and local partners on a multi-state outbreak of Salmonella Newport infections stemming from red onions.  The Public Health Agency of Canada is also investigating a Salmonella Newport outbreak that is seemingly related to the U.S. outbreak.

Red Onions Salmonella Newport Outbreak Information

On July 31, 2020, the FDA announced that they are working with Canadian health officials to identify the source of the Salmonella Newport outbreak.  Canadian health officials believe U.S. red onions are the potential source of the outbreak.  Canadian officials issued a recall as to U.S. imported red onions.

U.S. health officials were able to use this information, as well as epidemiologic information on the U.S. outbreak from CDC officials, to initiate a traceback investigation.  The investigation found that Thomson International, Inc. was the likely source of the contaminated red onions in the U.S. The FDA will continue to provide updates as the investigation continues.

About Salmonella

Common symptoms of salmonellosis (Salmonella infection) may include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating a contaminated food product. Illness usually lasts from about 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness.

Questions or concerns about foodborne illness should also be directed to your health care provider.

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.
