All foodborne illness outbreaks are devastating for victims but fascinating for investigators, since each is different.
This investigation has traced the illness-causing Salmonella to one kind of papaya (Maridol, under Caribeña, Cavi, and Valery brands) to one Mexican farm (Carica de Campeche).
But four Salmonella strains have been found in papaya samples and in ill people:
The shift from one to another is evident in the epi curve:
