Austin, Texas (December 31, 2021)- The Centers for Disease Control said the latest E. coli outbreak in six U.S. states is linked to packaged salad brands.
Although no E. coli deaths have been recorded as of Dec. 30, 2021, 13 infection cases have been reported, with four hospitalizations.
Suspected E. coli contaminated salad brands include Simple Truth Organic Power Greens and Nature’s Basket Organic Power Greens with “best if used by” dates ending on Dec. 20, 2021.
The CDC urges consumers to remove the affected brands from their freezers and refrigerators as investigators search for other contaminated brands.
The actual number of E. coli infections is expected to be higher than the reported cases because people are not tested, or they recover without medical care. The outbreak might have also affected other states.
Symptoms of E. coli infection include fever, severe stomach cramps, vomiting, and often bloody diarrhea.
People with symptoms are advised to talk to their healthcare providers and write down whatever they ate in the week before they became sick.
