Following the multi-state Salmonella Newport outbreak linked to onions, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on August 19, 2020, their involvement in a new investigation on a Salmonella Enteritidis outbreak linked to bagged peaches. The recently announced multi-state Salmonella outbreak has been traced back to bagged peaches sold at multiple Aldi locations. According to ALDI, the potentially contaminated peach products were supplied by Wawona Packing Company, LLC. As of the date of the outbreak announcement, a total of 68 laboratory-confirmed cases have been reported from 9 states so far. 

As of August 19, 2020, ALDI announced that they would be recalling all of Wawona-brand bagged peaches from select stores in multiple states. The State Officials from the Minnesota Department of Health stated that multiple people linked to the salmonella outbreak, through Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS), reported consuming Wawona-brand bagged peaches from ALDI before becoming ill. ALDI reported to the FDA that the potentially contaminated peaches were distributed to ALDI stores locations in CT, IA, IL, KY, MA, MI, MN, ND, NH, NY, OH, RI, SD, VT, WI, and WV. 

The FDA has announced that ALDI is currently working with the FDA and CDC to determine the source of the contamination.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have advised all consumers who purchased bagged peaches from an ALDI location between June 1, 2020, to the present to practice caution and dispose of the peaches. The last case linked to the outbreak thus far was reported on August 3, 2020, no deaths have been linked to the outbreak, but out of the 68 laboratory-confirmed cases 14 have required hospitalization. To date, the states that have reported cases linked to the outbreak are IA, MD, MI, MN, NJ, NY, PA, VA, and WI.

With the recent salmonella outbreaks linked to common household products, onions, and peaches, it is important for consumers to be on the lookout for symptoms of salmonella such as fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Ron Simon, a national salmonella lawyer who is representing people affected in the recent multi-state onions salmonella outbreak, stated:

 

“There is no way to tell if food is contaminated with Salmonella at first glance as it usually looks, smells, and tastes normal… Salmonella bacteria are usually transmitted to humans by food contaminated with the feces.” 

People who have eaten bagged peaches purchased at ALDI stores and are experiencing symptoms of salmonella should seek medical attention a soon as they are able to.
