    August 17, 2022

    CDC, public health and regulatory officials in several states, the FDA, and the USDA-FSIS are collecting different types of data to identify the food source of a multistate outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 infections. So far, illnesses have only been reported from Michigan and Ohio. A single food has not yet been identified as the source and this investigation is ongoing.

    Michigan and Ohio have both reported large increases in the number of E. coli infections in their states. As of August 16, 2022, a total of 29 people infected with the outbreak strain of E. coli O157:H7 have been reported to CDC from 2 states (MI and OH). 9 people were hospitalized and no deaths were reported. Illnesses started on dates ranging from July 26, 2022, to August 6, 2022

    To prevent getting sick from E. coli, CDC advises following these 4 steps when handling or preparing food: clean, separate, cook, and chill.
    - Clean: Wash your hands, utensils, and surfaces often. Rinse fruits and vegetables under running water before eating, cutting, or peeling.
    - Separate: Keep food that won’t be cooked separate from raw meat, poultry, and seafood.
    - Cook: Use a food thermometer to make sure you have cooked your food to a temperature high enough to kill germs.
    - Chill: Refrigerate perishable food (food that goes bad) within 2 hours. If the food is exposed to temperatures above 90°F (like a hot car or picnic), refrigerate within 1 hour. Thaw food in the refrigerator, not on the counter.

    In case you are experiencing E. coli symptoms such as watery diarrhea (often bloody), vomiting; stomach cramps; and mild 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.

    CDC, and the FDA are investigating a multistate outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes infections linked to packaged salads produced by Dole.

    The investigation is ongoing. 12 people have been hospitalized and 2 deaths were reported. Illnesses started on dates ranging from August 16, 2014, to October 17, 2021.

    CDC investigated this outbreak in 2019 and 2020 but was unable to gather enough data to identify the source in the past. CDC reopened the investigation in November 2021 when four new illnesses were reported since the end of August 2021. On December 22, 2021, Dole recalled all Dole-branded and private label packaged salads processed at the two facilities that produced the contaminated packaged salads.

    The affected products are packaged salads produced by Dole, Sold under multiple brands: Ahold, Dole, Kroger, Lidl, Little Salad Bar, Marketside, Naturally, Better, Nature’s Promise and Simply Nature. Products include mixed greens, garden salads, Caesar kits, and many other types of salads in bags or clamshells “Best if used by” dates from 11/30/21 through 01/08/22. Product lot code begins with the letter “N” or “Y” in the upper right-hand corner of the package.

    Do not eat, sell, or serve any recalled products. Investigators are working to determine if additional products may be contaminated.

    In case you are experiencing listeria monocytogenes symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, 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.
