Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Onions Sickens More Than 650 – The New York Times

The onions may have stickers or packaging indicating the brand (ProSource Inc.) and the country, Mexico, where they were grown.

The C.D.C. also urged consumers to throw away any whole red, white or yellow onions they have at home that do not have a sticker or packaging indicating where they are from.

Consumers and businesses should also wash and sanitize any surfaces that may have been in contact with onions imported from Chihuahua and distributed by ProSource, the C.D.C. said.

Salmonella, a type of bacteria, causes about 1.35 million illnesses, 26,500 hospitalizations and 420 deaths in the United States every year, according to the C.D.C.
