Global Salmonella outbreak linked to melons from Honduras

Food Safety News

Almost 350 confirmed and 50 more possible Salmonella infections have been recorded across Europe and in the United Kingdom linked to melons. Some patients live in the United States.

Between mid-March and early July, 348 people fell ill due to Salmonella Braenderup and 68 needed hospital treatment but none have died. Four people were sick in the United States and two in Canada.

In late June, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) looked into three illnesses related genetically by whole genome sequencing, but didn’t find a link to those sick after eating melons in the UK. One ill person travelled outside the U.S. before they were sick but not to Europe and didn’t report eating melons. The other two sick people didn’t have food histories available and didn’t report traveling.

The UK is the most affected country with 102 confirmed infections while Sweden, Belgium and Germany all have 46. Denmark has 37 cases, Netherlands has 34, Switzerland has 18 while Austria, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Ireland, Luxembourg and Norway have single figure patient numbers.

Canada – B.C. shellfish warnings issued by the Centre of Disease Control – Vibrio parahaemolyticus

City News

Marlith - Domic Acid ASP Toxin KSWFoodworld

Before digging for clams or harvesting mussels along province’s coast, the BC Centre for Disease Control is warning about a spike in illness associated with shellfish consumption in recent days.

Five people have been sick with V. parahaemolyticus (vibriosis) in the last two weeks, according to the BCCDC.

Symptoms of the foodborne illness associated with shellfish consumption include nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting.

The vibrio bacteria is naturally occurring in the ocean, and grows in molluscan shellfish such as clams, oysters, and mussels. Small amounts are not uncommon, but with warmer water, the bacteria can multiply rapidly. Experts say the recent heatwave created a perfect storm for more infections related to those eating shellfish.

The largest outbreak of vibriosis in B.C. history occurred in 2015, when 62 persons became ill. There are concerns if people don’t follow the latest warnings, this year could also be record-breaking.

Sweden – Sweden reports 13 Vibrio infections this July

Outbreak News Today

Vibrio_vulnificus_01

The Swedish Public Health Agency, or Folkhalsomyndigheten, reported today 13 cases of the more serious form of vibrio infection, all in July.

The cases have been reported from the coastal areas in Götaland and Svealand and, as in previous years, mostly men have fallen ill and the majority of cases are older than 65 years.

USA- Grimmway Farms Voluntarily Recalls Certain Retail-Packaged Carrots Due to Potential Salmonella Contamination

FDA

Company Announcement

Grimmway Farms has voluntarily issued a recall of certain carrot products because they may have been contaminated with Salmonella.

“The recall was initiated as a result of a routine, internal company test, said Grimmway Farms President and CEO Jeff Huckaby. “The health of our customers and the integrity of our products are our highest priorities, and we will continue to monitor and communicate as additional information is available.”

To date, no illnesses have been linked to this recall, but Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis, and arthritis.

In addition to the retail-packed products listed in the table at the end of this press release, the company recalled certain shredded carrots and chopped (chunk) carrots that were sold to food manufacturers and food service distributors. All affected food manufacturers, food service distributors, and retail customers have been notified with much of the product having been recaptured before being available for consumption.

The products listed in the table below were shipped directly to retailers throughout the United States.

Consumers can identify the recalled products from the table below and the photos posted on the company website. Anyone who has the recalled product in their possession should not consume it and should destroy or discard it. Consumers with questions may contact our customer services desk at 1-800-301-3101, M-F, 8am – 8pm ET, or visit www.grimmway.comExternal Link Disclaimer.

The company has notified all customers who received the recalled product directly from Grimmway Farms and requested that they remove it from commerce. Grimmway Farms also has requested that direct customers notify their customers of this recall. Grimmway Farms is issuing this press release and keeping the U.S. Food and Drug Administration informed of its recall process to assure that consumers are properly alerted and informed.
