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 Thompson infections. As of October 7, 2021, 102 people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Thompson have been reported from 14 states (AZ, CO, CT, IA, MN, MO, NE, PA, TX, VA, WA, and WY). 19 were hospitalized and no deaths were reported.

Epidemiologic, laboratory, and traceback data show that this outbreak is linked to seafood distributed by Northeast Seafood Products of Denver, Colorado. The recall was announced by FDA on October 8. These products were distributed to restaurants and grocery stores in Colorado through October 7, 2021, sold at seafood counters in Albertsons, Safeway, and Sprouts grocery stores in Colorado, and were distributed fresh but may have been frozen later by consumers and businesses.

Seafood types of the recall include Haddock, Monkfish, Bone-in Trout, Grouper, Red Snapper, Red Rock Cod, Ocean Perch, Pacific Cod, Halibut, Coho Salmon, Atlantic Salmon Portions, Lane Snapper, Tilapia, All Natural Salmon Fillet, Pacific Sole, and Farm Raised Striped Bass.

The majority of sick people are either Colorado residents or reported traveling to Colorado in the week before they got sick. Only two people did not report travel to Colorado in the week before they got sick. Illnesses started on dates ranging from May 11, 2021, to September 7, 2021. The investigation is ongoing.

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.
