CDC: Recalled Onions Linked to 869 Salmonella Cases in 47 States

Agency said there have been 116 hospitalizations

WEDNESDAY, Aug. 19, 2020 (HealthDay News) — Recalled onions have been linked to a Salmonella outbreak that has caused 869 illnesses in 47 states, according to an update late Tuesday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The agency said there have been 116 hospitalizations.

The onions and foods that contain them have led to a number of consumer alerts and recalls by major retailers nationwide. For example, Kroger — the country’s largest supermarket chain — last week recalled more than 30 varieties of cheese dips and spreads as they may contain the recalled onions.

Consumers have also been warned about eating prepared foods that contain the recalled onions and were sold by other retailers, including Giant Eagle and Walmart.
