Mystery Salmonella Outbreaks

Last week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced two Salmonella outbreaks with unidentified food sources. This week both of them increased in size.

A Salmonella Braenderup outbreak increased from 40 to 42 illnesses and a Salmonella Paratyphi B variant L(+) tartrate+ outbreak increased from 13 to 14 illnesses.  The FDA did not provide any further information such as the age of the patients, if they were hospitalized or where they reside.

Previous outbreaks have been linked to each of these Salmonella strains. Salmonella Braenderup was the source of multistate outbreaks linked to shell eggs, nut butter, and mangoes. Salmonella Paratyphi B variant. L(+) tartrate+ was the source of outbreaks linked to raw, sprouted nut butters and frozen, raw tuna.
