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

“My husband and I shared a green smoothie on a Saturday afternoon. On Sunday, I had a rumbly stomach and then diarrhea for hours. The next morning, my husband woke up with the same thing, plus crawly skin, achiness and the chills. (This is how food poisoning always affects him.)... See More Neither of us have vomited, but it's Tuesday, and we both still have stomach pain and fatigue. No one else around is or had been ill, and the smoothie is the only thing we had all weekend that was different than everyone else in the family. I'm always cautious about consuming smoothies out, just because there is a risk the produce and the equipment maybe aren't as carefully washed as they are when I make them at home. Our delayed response makes sense to us, since it takes a while for some pathogens to multiply and make themselves known in the body. This was our first time eating (drinking) here and it'll likely be our last, unfortunately.
