Salmonella Outbreak Investigation: Wood Ear Mushrooms
September 24, 2020 10:14 PM
The FDA, along with CDC and state and local partners, is investigating an ongoing multistate outbreak of Salmonella Stanley infections likely linked to wood ear mushrooms imported by Wismettac Asian Foods, Inc. of Santa Fe Springs, CA. Wood ear mushrooms are a dried mushroom, also commonly labelled or referred to as Kikurage, Dried Black Fungus, Dried Fungus, or Mu’er/Mu Er/Mu-Err.
As of September 24, 2020, a total of 41 people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Stanley have been reported from 10 states. In interviews, ill people answered questions about the foods they ate and other exposures in the week before they became ill. According to the CDC, of 18 people with information, 16 (89%) reported eating ramen at a restaurant in the week before their illness started. Four illness clusters were identified at restaurants serving ramen in three states. Eight (89%) of the nine ill people linked to restaurant clusters reported eating wood ear mushrooms or ramen containing wood ear mushrooms in the week before their illness started.
Wismettac Asian Foods, Inc. acted quickly upon being notified of the positive test result and recalled all wood ear mushrooms within shelf life on September 23, 2020. This product was labeled as Shirakiku brand Black Fungus (Kikurage) with UPC Code 00074410604305, imported from China. Product was distributed in six packs of five-pound bags to restaurants in AR, CA, CO, CT, DE, DC, FL, GA, HI, IA, IL, IN, LA, MA, MD, MI, MN, MO, MS, NC, NV, NJ, NY, OH, OR, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA, WA, WI, and Canada.

“Ordered a fried chicken sandwich with extra pickles, fries, and a coke at about 8 PM on 10/24/2020. Hadn't had lunch, so was experiencing hunger pains before. Almost immediately after finishing the sandwich and fries, I felt some stomach pain. Roughly 45 min later, the pain escalated to be quite int... ense. I vomited and had diarrhea, temporarily relieving some pain. Replaced my dinner with water, tums, and saltines, and soon vomited again. About 14 hours later, still experiencing constant stomach discomfort, occasional pain, diarrhea, and have induced vomiting a couple times. At the height of pain, I become feverish and sweaty. ”

“On the evening of Sunday 18th October just before my meal I consumed 3 Moringa seeds. Approximately two hours after eating I became more and more nauseous eventually vomiting violently several times. At 4am the next morning I awoke and had to go to the washroom where I stayed for about half an hour... with diarrhea. That day I felt ok but a little delicate and as the week went on I got back to my normal "cast iron" digestive system.
I had suspected three things that I had eaten as the cause. A ham and some beets, both of which I threw out. The Moringa seeds were the third suspect.
I have eaten Moringa seeds before with no issue but this was a new package from a source I hadn't used before.
I decided to try them again to see wether they were the culprit and I waited until Saturday 24th Oct as I wasn't having to go to work the next day unlike the week before.
I had my evening meal and this time I consumed two seeds after my meal. Within an hour it became obvious that it was the seeds that were the cause. My symptoms followed the same as the previous week. Violently sick after two hours and again diarrhea four or so hours later.
The seeds were from thehonestsource.com and purchased online. ”
