FDA Investigation ongoing of Salmonella outbreak August 2023 - Unknown source

8 months ago source www.fda.gov

Outbreak

United States

October 12, 2013

This outbreak is over, the FDA closed the investigation. The source of this outbreak was linked to watermelon and cantaloupe. The CDC's epidemiological study revealed that most affected individuals had consumed these fruits before falling ill, primarily in the Midwest. However, the exact source of contamination remained unidentified during the active outbreak. Fortunately, there is currently no threat to the public as the implicated products have been removed from the market. Sampling and analysis indicated that three environmental samples from farms in Southwest Indiana tested positive for Salmonella Newport, the strain responsible for the outbreak. Furthermore, samples from a farm of interest and its vicinity also tested positive for Salmonella, matching strains from previous outbreaks, including those discussed in the 2022 Outbreak Investigation Report concerning Cantaloupe-related Salmonella Typhimurium Illnesses. This year's findings highlight ongoing food safety concerns related to melons from the Southwest Indiana growing region.

August 30, 2023

The FDA is currently investigating an outbreak of Salmonella Newport. As of August 30, 2023, a total of 8 people infected with Salmonella Newport have been reported. No specific product has been linked to this investigation as of today. FDA has initiated traceback. This investigation is ongoing.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis, and arthritis.

In case you are experiencing Salmonella symptoms, 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.
