The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has announced a multi-country Shigella sonnei outbreak involving the United States and many countries in the European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA). The outbreak began in September 2022 and has continued to evolve rapidly during November and December 2022.... See More

As of February 16th, 2023, 10 EU/EEA countries and the UK reported and the US reported 221 confirmed Shigella sonnei infections and 37 possible cases linked to travel to Cape Verde, in the image below you can find more details. While the exact source of the outbreak has not been identified, investigations are ongoing in Cabo Verde. It is believed that the infection was spread through food, including through infected food handlers, as well as through person-to-person contact.

The strain of Shigella involved in the outbreak is resistant to trimethoprim and streptomycin, and in some cases, multidrug resistance has been detected. Many cases have been linked to all-inclusive hotels located in the region of Santa Maria on the island of Sal. The most recent cases were reported in Sweden on 19 January 2023.

In response to the outbreak, ECDC is urging public health authorities in the EU/EEA to increase awareness among healthcare professionals and is working with the World Health Organization to support investigations in Cabo Verde. To prevent further spread of the infection, ECDC is recommending that people practice good handwashing with soap and water and take additional care with food and drink when traveling abroad. People with shigellosis should not attend school, handle food, or provide care for children or patients while ill.

In case you are experiencing Shigellosis symptoms such as watery diarrhea (often bloody), vomiting; stomach pain; and fever, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.

Eat Tuna roll from Bento Box. 6/22/20. Got horrendously sick. Violent Diarrhea which turned to blood. Went to hospital, admitted immediately. Had one of the most potent bacterial toxins known - Shiga Toxin. Very dangerous. Also got sick last time we went there. Had Nigiri Sake - Salmon. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Bloody Stool See Less

On December 25 I ordered Burgers and chicken strips.
In a couple of hours I was throwing up and got really sick over night. I was throwing up and had constant diarrhea. I went to the hospital the next day. I was in so much pain. They... See More told me I had an infection in my stomach and that it had spread. I went into septic shock. They gave me antibiotic for 5 days intravenously. They said i could have died. Later after testing they discovered that I had contracted Shigellosis, which is:

Shigella germs are in the stool (poop) of sick people while they have diarrhea and for up to a week or two after the diarrhea has gone away. Shigella germs are very contagious; it takes just a small number of Shigella germs to make someone sick. People can get shigellosis when they put something in their mouths or swallow something that has come into contact with the stool of someone else who is sick with shigellosis. People could get sick by:

Getting Shigella germs on their hands and then touching your food or mouth. You can get Shigella germs on your hands after:
Touching surfaces contaminated with germs from stool from a sick person, such as toys, bathroom fixtures, changing tables or diaper pails
Changing the diaper of a sick child or caring for a sick person
Eating food that was prepared by someone who is sick with shigellosis
Swallowing recreational water (for example, lake or river water) while swimming or drinking water that is contaminated with stool (poop) containing the germ
Having exposure to stool during sexual contact with someone who is sick or recently (several weeks) recovered from shigellosis..

It was an aweful experience. I almost died. I highly recommend no eat there. I am reporting it to the health department. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Vomiting, Other

Saturday early evening on July 20, 2019 Myself age 41, spouse age 50 and daughter age 3 ate for only the 2nd time ever at. We went there because they have a play area and my daughter wanted to play. We ordered her a kids meal chicken... See More nuggets, fruit and a juice with ranch. I had a spicy chicken sandwich and the fries and a soft drink. My spouse was t hungry and didn’t eat. Fast forward to Wed and I noticed she was a little warm but I thought nothing of it and thought it was due to weather and being outdoors a bit. Thursday was different. She slept a lot (very unlike her) and when she woke up she was burning up. She was given Tylenol and then later checked fever and still close to 100. She threw up and complained of her tummy hurting and she couldn’t/ wouldn’t go to the bathroom. She kept saying it hurt. Next day didn’t go to work to take her to doctor and he tested urine said found blood and pus. Said thought a UTI or some kind of virus gave medication and went home. Later she went diarrhea a lot. Bloody bright red too. Called doctors office very concerned and he called back. He asked us to get a stool sample but then called back and said for us to go to the ER to check her red blood cells. By this time she was very tired, lethargic, diarrhea saying “I don’t like this mommy” over and over. It was heartbreaking. She continued to have blood. Went to ER and again there more diarrhea and blood. They got us in pretty quickly but we had to wait a bit for the doctor. Went in Ventura. Fever still, took blood, waited and waited, did ultrasound and he said things looked ok on ultrasound then later said that he talked to also another doctor and said strain looked like something called Shigella. We got a urine sample and a stool sample which still had blood and just looked terrible. She felt awful. They gave her two injections of an antibiotic that they said would help. Both given at same time in each leg. So painful for her and us as parents. Gave us a prescription and said to watch her hydration and monitor amount of blood in poop. 2 days later they confirmed stool was Shigella. Then the PUBLIC health office called and told us she was the only case in Ventura County that hasn’t traveled. The lady said that another person has it who traveled. We were very scared at this point retracing steps. She continued and continues to have diarrhea. We give her so many fluids and have quarantined her. We are worried and are learning about this diagnosis as we go. Tomorrow we are our primary care again to arrange a test. The Public Health lady said she has to test negative two times. I’m so worried about her kidneys from what I read and if there are long term effects. She is just 3. Spunky and so lovable and we just want her to be better. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Fever See Less
