Multistate Salmonella infection outbreak linked to frozen raw tuna
An outbreak of Salmonella infections impacting 62 people across 11 states has been linked to frozen raw tuna, according to CDC.
The outbreak is caused by Salmonella Paratyphi B variant L(+) tartrate(+) bacteria, formerly known as Salmonella Java and has led to 11 hospitalizations.
On July 21, Osamu Corporation issued two voluntary recalls of frozen yellowfin tuna from a processing plant in Indonesia. CDC says the outbreak is likely due to consumption of sushi which many of the ill reportedly ate within a week of becoming sick.
