Listeria multistate outbreak linked to Deli-sliced meats and cheeses

*UPDATE* September 27th, 2019

According to the CDC, this outbreak appears to be over.  People who are at higher risk for Listeria infection should avoid eating deli meats unless they are properly heated. A total of 10 people were reported sick Listeria were reported from 4 states and one death was reported from Michigan.

Apr 17th, 2019

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced they are investigating an outbreak of Listeria infections on four states linked to meats and cheeses sliced at deli counters. As of Apr, 17th there have been eight confirmed cases, all of them which have required hospitalization and one death has been reported.

As there is no common supplier identified so far, CDC advises retailers to clean and sanitize deli slicers frequently and other areas where deli products are prepared, stored or served to avoid cross-contamination. There are no recalls linked to this case so far.

CDC also points out that pregnant women, people age 65 or older, or people with a weakened immune system should avoid eating lunch meats, cold cuts, or other deli meats unless they are heated to an internal temperature of 165°F or until steaming hot just before serving.

Additional recommended steps to prevent Listeria infection:

  • Listeria bacteria can survive at very low temperatures and can spread easily to other foods and surfaces. Consumers should clean refrigerators, kitchen countertops, utensils, and other surfaces that touch deli-sliced products.
  • Don’t let juice from lunch meat and hot dog packages get on other foods, utensils, and food preparation surfaces.
  • Wash hands after handling deli meats, lunch meats, deli cheeses, and hot dogs.
  • Store opened packages of meat sliced at a local deli no longer than 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator.

You can check the full outbreak notice in the CDC website

Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, 1 Terminal Drive, Nashville, TN, USA

Report Type: Food Poisoning
Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea Vomiting
“My, husband, me and my son were flying back from vacation in Florida on 3/24/19. We arrived at the Nashville, TN Airport and were hungry. We went to food place but they were out of breakfast sandwiches. My son said, "let's go to here. So we did. My son ordered... See More a chicken, egg and cheese biscuit. When he opened it the egg was missing. We went to the counter and they told us to keep the sandwich and they gave my son a new one with egg on it. I decided I would order a sandwich as well. I ordered a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit. My husband decided to eat my son's sandwich that was incorrect without the egg on it. We hadn't eaten anything since the afternoon the day before. We flew home to Oklahoma and unpacked, I went to the grocery store and ran a few errands. Back at the house around 7pm and I was cooking dinner. I was standing at the counter and had almost completed my husband's and son's dinner plates when my stomach started hurting. It was a really weird feeling and my husband looked at me and said, "honey, are you ok? I said, no, I think I'm going to get sick. I excused myself and came back a few minutes later and thought I had passed. Within 2 minutes I said, I'm going to get sick. Left and was in the bathroom for hours, getting sick and other things continually. It was so brutal. I finally had to text my husband from the bathroom telling him I needed him to take me to the emergency room. We finally got to the ER and they admitted me and gave me several medications trying to help me stop getting sick. They finally discharged me but I got sick again and they re-admitted me. I was re-admitted 3 different times. During my time in the hospital, my son, 16 years old, was at home sleeping. An hour after me being in the hospital my husband's phone rang. We couldn't hear our son but knew by the phone number it was him. He was getting violently ill as well. The only thing in common we ate was this. It was the egg in the sandwich. I spoke with the manager many times and the owner of that location. I have dozens of emails and was assured by manager that my medical bills would be paid. They have not paid anything and continually avoid my calls. My last conversation with owner was right before Thanksgiving when he called me and said he was sorry for what I went through. He said he was sorry for not calling me sooner but their insurance company told him not too. He went against their telling him not to call me and told me we were going to figure this out and he would call me the week after Thanksgiving. He has not called me since.
