Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Jule’s products

PDQ Restaurant, United States

April 22, 2021 11:42 PM

“CDC, public health and regulatory officials in several states, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are collecting different types of data to investigate a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Duisburg infections.

Epidemiologic and traceback data show that Jule’s cashew brie may be conta... See Moreminated with Salmonella and may be making people sick.

As of April 21, 2021, five people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Duisburg have been reported from three states (CA, FL, TN). 2 people have been hospitalized and no deaths were reported. Illnesses started on dates ranging from February 1, 2021 to February 27, 2021.

It is possible that more recent illnesses may be reported in the outbreak because there is a period of time between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported to public health officials.

State and local public health officials interviewed people about the foods they ate in the week before they got sick. Of the five people interviewed, three (60%) reported eating Jule’s truffle cashew brie – the only common product identified. Two of these people reported eating the cashew truffle brie at the same restaurant on different days.

On April 22, California officials found Salmonella in samples of all varieties of Jule’s cashew brie collected from grocery stores. Investigators are working to confirm if the Salmonella bacteria found in these products is the same bacteria making people sick in this outbreak.

Jule’s Foods recalled all their products on April 22, including:

-Jule’s cashew brie (classic)
-Jule’s truffle cashew brie
-Jule’s black garlic cashew brie
-Jule’s artichoke spinach dip
-Jule’s vegan ranch dressing

CDC advises everyone not to eat, sell, or serve the recalled products. Jule’s Foods has stopped producing and distributing all of their products. Products were for sale online nationwide and in stores in many states.

Nebraska Health Alert for Norovirus Outbreak

Jimmy Dean Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich, Nebraska, United States

April 19, 2021 9:44 PM

“The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Office of Epidemiology has reported a Health Alert to Long-Term Care Facilities, Skilled Nursing Facilities, Childcare Centers, Schools, Primary Care Providers, Public Health in Nebraska due to Norovirus Outbreak.

The DHHS Office of Epidemiolog... See Morey of Nebraska has received reports of 14 suspected or confirmed norovirus outbreaks among long-term care facilities, skilled nursing facilities, childcare centers, and schools since march 1, 2021. The norovirus season typically peaks from December to March, and begins to decline in April, but for this time of year, it has been unusually high.

Norovirus is the most common cause of acute gastrointestinal disease in the United States. It is very contagious and can be contracted from an infected person, contaminated water or food, or even a contaminated surface.

The DHHS of Nebraska advises:
- Long-term care facilities, assisted living, and skilled nursing facilities should restrict ill residents from leaving their room until 48 hours after their symptoms resolve to reduce the risk of further spread (unless it is for essential care or treatment). Consider suspending group activities for the duration of the outbreak. Exclude ill staff, especially those with patient care and food handling responsibilities, until 48 hours after symptoms resolve to help reduce further spread. Staff who work at multiple healthcare facilities should eliminate or minimize inter-facility movement during the duration of the outbreak. Additionally, enforcing exclusion policies for visitors will help prevent further spread.
- Childcare centers and schools should educate staff and children on proper hand hygiene. Facilities should assist younger children with washing their hands after using the toilet and before eating. Any staff, childcare attendee, or student with symptoms of norovirus infection should be sent home and not return until 48 hours after symptoms resolve to help prevent further spread.
- Environmental surfaces should be disinfected using a chlorine bleach solution with a concentration of 1,000-5,000 ppm (5-25 tablespoons of household bleach [5-8 %] per gallon of water) or other disinfectants effective against norovirus.

Any facility with two or more suspected norovirus ill persons within 72 hours should report the suspected outbreak to their local health department.

April 15, 2021

The CDC and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA-FSIS) are currently investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella infections linked to raw ground turkey. As of April 12, 2021, 28 people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Hadar have been reported from 12 states (AZ, CT, IN, MA, ME, MO, NC, NH, NJ, NY, PA, VA). 2 people have been hospitalized and no deaths were reported.

The following products are linked to salmonella infections:

- Nature’s Promise (94% lean 6% fat) – 1 lb packages with dates 1/1, 1/3, 1/4, 1/8, and 1/10
- Wegmans (94% lean 6% fat) – 1 lb and 3 lb packages with dates 1/3, 1/4, 1/8, and 1/10
- Plainville Farms (93% lean 7% fat) – 1 lb packages with dates 1/10

These products have the establishment number “P-244” inside the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) mark of inspection. They were made on December 18-29, 2020, and were sold nationwide.

Investigators are working to determine if additional turkey products are linked to illnesses.

CDC advises consumers to check their freezers for the products and throw them away or return them to the place of purchase. Also recommends washing your hands with soap and water after handling the products, and wash items and surfaces that may have touched the products using hot soapy water or a dishwasher.

Between October and December 2020, CFIA issued food recall warnings for a variety of eggs distributed in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador. The recalled eggs are now past their shelf-life and are no longer available for purchase. The CFIA is continuing its food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.

It is possible that more recent illnesses may be reported in the outbreak because there is a period of time between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported to public health officials. For this outbreak, the illness reporting period is between three and six weeks.

See Moreelito-brand Hispanic-style fresh and soft cheeses from a store where a sick person bought cheeses. Sample analysis showed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in samples of El Abuelito Queso Fresco sold in 10 oz packages, marked as Lot A027 with an expiration date of 02/26/2021. Samples are currently undergoing Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) analysis to determine if the Listeria monocytogenes found in these samples is a match to the outbreak strain. At this time, there is not enough evidence to determine if this outbreak is linked to El Abuelito Queso Fresco.

FDA advises consumers, restaurants, and retailers not to eat, sell, or serve El Abuelito Queso Fresco cheese until more information is known. FDA and state partners are working with the firm to recall the affected lot and to determine if additional products should be recalled. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.

As of February 17, 2021, there are reports of seven people infected with the outbreak strain of Listeria monocytogenes in Connecticut, Maryland, New York, and Virginia. Six of the seven ill people are Hispanic. Of the four people interviewed, three reported eating at least one type of Hispanic-style fresh and soft cheeses, and all three reported eating queso fresco.
