USA – The CDC reports 1, but the New Mexico Department of Health reports 30 with Salmonella linked to Ground Beef

Food Poison Journal 

 

If the CDC reported 1 as of 10/23 and New Mexico reported 30 today, the CDC’s count of 120 in 22 states sickened with Salmonella is clearly going to spike.

The New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) on a multi-state cluster of Salmonella infections linked to ground beef.

Since late August, NMDOH has identified 30 New Mexico residents that were diagnosed with Salmonella after preparing ground beef at home. Illness duration has averaged 13 days and 27% of patients were hospitalized.
