What’s the Problem?

FDA said the likely source of the outbreak are red onions produced by Thomson International in Bakersfield, California.

“Although the investigation has determined that red onions are the likely source of this outbreak, Thomson International, Inc. has notified FDA that it will be recalling all varieties of onions that could have come in contact with potentially contaminated red onions, due to the risk of cross-contamination,” the agency said.

The outbreak of salmonella Newport has sickened at least 396 people, nearly 60 of whom required hospitalization, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The first cases were reported between June 19, 2020, and July 11, 2020.

Signs and symptoms of salmonella Newport infection include:

  • diarrhea
  • fever
  • stomach cramps

Presentation of symptoms typically occurs from 6 hours to 6 days after exposure to the bacteria, CDC said. Patients under the age of age 5, those over 65, and people with compromised immune systems tend to have the most severe illnesses.

CDC is urging anyone with symptoms of salmonella infection to contact their physician immediately, record what they ate the week before they got sick, and report their illness to local health authorities.
