  • Salmonella enterica subspecies IIIb has been added to this investigation because two people were infected with this strain of Salmonella and with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Sandiego at the same time. A search of the CDC PulseNet database found six additional people infected with the strain of Salmonella enterica subspecies IIIb and these cases have also been added to the outbreak.
  • A total of 79 people infected with the outbreak strains of Salmonella have been reported from nine states.
  • Illnesses started on dates ranging from June 21, 2018, to July 15, 2018.
  • Epidemiologic evidence(https://www.cdc.gov/foodsafety/outbreaks/investigating-outbreaks/index.html) indicates that Spring Pasta Salad purchased at Hy-Vee grocery stores is a likely source of the outbreak.
  • This investigation is ongoing, and CDC will provide updates when more information is available.
