A Salmonella outbreak initially reported in Norway has grown and now is also affecting Sweden.
The Norwegian Institute of Public Health (FHI) said 58 people are sick in the Salmonella Agona outbreak and 23 had been hospitalized. This is up from 31 sick and 13 hospitalizations.
In Sweden, 26 people have been affected, according to the Public Health Agency of Sweden (Folkhälsomyndigheten).
An investigation to find the source is ongoing with FHI, local officials, the Norwegian Food Safety Authority (Mattilsynet), and the Veterinary Institute. The cause is believed to be an imported food product distributed across the country and also in Sweden.
