Salmonella Outbreak In 37 States Linked To Onions, CDC Says


A salmonella outbreak that has sickened close to 700 people in 37 states is being blamed on onions, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

  • CDC officials say the whole red, white, and yellow onions were imported from Chihuahua, Mexico, and sold to restaurants and grocery stores throughout the U.S.
  • The onions were last imported on August 27 but can last up to three months in storage.
  • The onions may have stickers or packaging indicating the brand (ProSource Inc.) and the country (Mexico) where they were grown.
  • The CDC is urging everyone, "If you can't tell where they are from, throw them away."
