Thomson International, Inc. Salmonella Lawyer Update: More than 1,300 Salmonella Newport Cases Reported from U.S. and Canada.

As the multi-state salmonella outbreak linked to onions continues to grow in numbers more states have begun reporting laboratory-confirmed cases linked to the outbreak strain, thus far 47 states have reported 869 cases. On August 31, 2020, the Public Health Agency of Canada also announced an increase of 78 reported cases in 7 provinces since the last update back on August 21. According to the information provided by the Public Health Agency of Canada, the number cases have risen to a total of 457 laboratory-confirmed cases bringing the total number of cases linked to the outbreak to 1,326 in both the U.S. and Canada. 

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Public Health Agency of Canada have stated that the salmonella outbreak has been linked to onions distributed from Thomson International of Bakersfield, California. Thus far no other distributors have been linked to the growing outbreak, a recall has been issued on red, yellow, white, and sweet onions as well as a variety of other onions due to the potential for cross-contamination. No Canadian grown onions have been linked to an outbreak at this time. 

Health officials in both the U.S. and Canada have continued to advise all consumers to dispose of any onion products that may have been distributed by Thomson International. Although the recall is still inaction health officials believe that the number of cases may continue to grow in the coming weeks as more people continue to seek out medical attention. A health notice was issued by the Public Health Agency of Canada advising all consumers to practice caution when eating prepared foods that are made with onions, such as salads, sandwiches, wraps, dips, salsas, or guacamole.

People who have eaten onions and are exhibiting symptoms such as headache, fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal and stomach cramps, and diarrhea should consider consulting a medical health care professional as soon as possible as they are symptoms of salmonella. Salmonella infects people of all age groups and backgrounds. Infants, the elderly, and people who have compromised immune systems are at greater risk of severe or complicated disease. 

Ron Simon, a national Salmonella Lawyer, stated:

 “Although direct person-to-person transmission of the infection is theoretically possible, more than 95% of Salmonella infections are transmitted by the consumption of foods contaminated with the bacteria… Salmonella bacteria are usually transmitted to humans who unknowingly consume food contaminated with the feces.”
