Illinois, Ohio, and Texas now report Salmonella infections linked to papayas

Illinois, Ohio, and Texas now report Salmonella infections linked to papayas”

As of August 9, 2017, 141 people infected with the outbreak strains of Salmonella Kiambu (51) or Salmonella Thompson (90) have been reported from 19 states.

The FDA is advising consumers not to eat Maradol papayas from the Carica de Campeche farm in Mexico because they are linked to an outbreak of salmonellosis.

OH has joined 18 other states reporting an infection from Salmonella bacteria attributed to recalled Maradol papayas from Mexico.

Cases in NY almost tripled to 36 since the last report on July 21 and New Jersey cases have more than doubled to 26.

The 66 cases in the bi-state area account for nearly half the 141 cases nationwide, and the 26 cases reported in New York City are the highest of any locality, officials said.

"The investigation is continuing and we'll post more information when it's available", said Peter Cassell.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention referred questions about the distribution of cases - including four cases in Oklahoma and one in Wisconsin - to the Food and Drug Administration. Forty-nine people have been hospitalized nationwide since the illnesses started in mid-May. One person in New York City died.

The CDC says while they believe the source of the multistate outbreak stems from the papayas from the Carica de Campeche farm in Mexico, the papayas are sold under different brand names.

Three brands of Maradol papayas have been recalled: Caribeña brand, distributed by Grande Produce; certain Cavi brand papayas distributed by Agroson's; and Valery brand papayas, distributed by Freshtex Produce, LLC. The farm is located on the Gulf of Mexico side of the Yucatan Peninsula. Children under 5 years, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems are especially vulnerable.

The CDC said laboratory evidence using genetic testing has connected some of the illnesses to papaya from the farm.
