The onion Salmonella outbreak has sickened 23 people in Michigan, 10 of whom are residents of Ottawa County, according to local health officials. The illnesses are part of a multistate outbreak that has sickened more than 500 people in the U.S. and Canada.
A recall for onions produced by Thomson Internation Inc. of Bakersfield, CA and sold in bulk and under a variety of brand names at Walmart, ALDI and other stores has been issued. Unless consumers are certain that onions they have purchased were not produced by Thomson, they should not eat them, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned.
Symptoms of a Salmonella infection include diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. Usually, these symptoms develop within six to 72 hours of exposure. Anyone who develops these symptoms after eating red, white or yellow onions or foods containing them should see a doctor. A stool sample test can determine if you are part of this outbreak.
