The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) along with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), issued an update on a recent Salmonella Thompson outbreak, on October 8

, 2021. In their update, health department officials linked the outbreak strain to seafood products sold in restaurants and grocery stores in Colorado. The recent outbreak was linked to over 100 cases of people who became ill after visiting Colorado and eating seafood. The reported cases were received by Health Department officials from fourteen different states and nearly twenty of the people who became ill required hospitalization.


In their outbreak investigation report, the CDC stated that after interviewing most of the people linked to the outbreak it found almost all had visited Colorado in the week before becoming ill. Health department officials began receiving reports of cases linked to the outbreak from as early as May 11, 2021, with the most recent case reported on September 7, 2021. From the timeframe of the reported cases, the FDA stated that the number of cases linked to the outbreak may be far greater than the 102 cases reported thus far, since many people may have opted out of medical treatment or did not provide a stool sample for a stool culture.


The FDA and Colorado state health officials stated in the outbreak report that after further investigation they were able to trace the seafood sold to the reported cases to Northeast Seafood Products in Denver, Colorado. After collecting environmental samples from a Northeast Seafood Products facility, the FDA was able to identify the outbreak strain of Salmonella Thompson. On October 7

The CDC is advising consumers who purchased the potentially contaminated seafood products to dispose of them or return them to the place of purchase. Consumers who have purchased and eaten any of the contaminated seafood should remain vigilant for symptoms of salmonella such as diarrhea, fever, abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. Ron Simon, a National Salmonella Lawyer, stated:

“A series of events occurs between the time a patient is infected, and the time public health officials can determine that the patient is part of an outbreak. This means that there will be a delay between the start of illness and confirmation that a patient is part of an outbreak.”
