March 30, 2023

CDC, public health and regulatory officials in several states, and the FDA are investigating a Salmonella Infantis outbreak linked to flour. As of March 30, 2023, 12 people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Infantis have been reported from 11 states (CA, IA, IL, MN, MO, NE, NY, OH, OR, TN, and VA). 3 have been hospitalized and no deaths have been reported.

Most people reported eating raw dough or batter made with flour before they got sick. Flour was the only common ingredient in the raw dough or batter people reported eating. Investigators are working to identify a specific brand of flour linked to illnesses.

Flour doesn’t look like a raw food, but most flour is raw. This means that it hasn’t been treated to kill germs that cause food poisoning. Any raw (unbaked) flour used to make dough or batter can be contaminated with germs like Salmonella, but Salmonella germs are killed when flour is cooked or baked. You can get sick after eating or tasting raw dough or batter. Children can get sick from handling or eating raw dough used for crafts or play clay.

CDC advises taking these precautions:
- Do not eat raw dough or batter – even a small amount can make you or your child sick. Bake or cook food made with raw flour, like cookie dough or cake batter, before eating it
- Buy heat-treated flour to use in recipes for homemade playdough.
- Wash any bowls, utensils, and surfaces that touched raw flour with warm water and soap.
- Wash your hands with warm water and soap before and after using raw flour.
- Keep raw flour, dough, and batter separate from foods that won’t be cooked.

In case you are experiencing Salmonella symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps, 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.
