Increase of Campylobacteriosis cases in McHenry County, IL

3 months ago

Illinois, United States

The MCDH is investigating an increase in Campylobacteriosis cases in McHenry County. They have identified 8 cases of Campylobacteriosis between Aug. 17 and Aug. 30, which is 4 times more cases compared to the previous two weeks and 3.33 times more cases in August compared to July. No common source of infection has been identified at this time.

According to MCDH the best way to prevent a campylobacteriosis infection is to take these precautions:
- Do not drink raw (unpasteurized) milk or untreated water from lakes, rivers or ponds
- Practice good hand hygiene, especially when handling puppies or kittens with diarrhea
- Wash hands before, during and after preparing food
- Cook all raw meats to proper temperature
- Use soap and hot water to wash cutting boards, counters or utensils used to prepare raw poultry, seafood or meat to prevent cross contamination with other foods
- Avoid handling food, caring for others, patient care or daycare work if symptomatic.

In case you experience Campylobacter symptoms such as diarrhea (often bloody), fever, nausea, vomiting, and stomach cramps, report it now. 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.

The FSIS announced the recall of approximately 93,697 pounds of raw ground beef products by Tyson Fresh Meats, Inc., an Amarillo, Texas establishment because they may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically reflective mirror-like material. These products were shipped to retail locations in Texas. There have been... See More no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

The recalled products are:
- 10-lb. chubs containing “HILL COUNTRY FARE GROUND BEEF 73% LEAN/ 27% FAT with BEST BEFORE OR FREEZE BY: NOV 25, 2022.”
- 5-lb. chubs containing “HILL COUNTRY FARE GROUND BEEF 73% LEAN/ 27% FAT with BEST BEFORE OR FREEZE BY: NOV 25, 2022.”
- 5-lb. chubs containing “H-E-B GROUND CHUCK GROUND BEEF 80% LEAN/ 20% FAT.”

These products bear the establishment number “EST. 245E” on the seam of the chub. The problem was discovered when the firm notified FSIS that they received consumer complaints reporting findings of “mirror-like” material in ground beef products purchased from grocery stores.

FSIS is concerned that some products may be in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

In case you experience harm from extraneous materials, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve issues and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.
