Multistate Outbreak of Salmonella Typhimurium Linked to Chicken Salad

Salmonella

CDC, public health and regulatory officials in several states, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA-FSIS) are investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Typhimurium infections. Epidemiologic and laboratory evidence indicates that chicken salad produced by Triple T Specialty Meats, Inc. from January 4, 2018 to February 9, 2018, and sold at Fareway grocery stores is the likely source of this multistate outbreak.

As of February 21, 2018, 65 people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Typhimurium have been reported from 5 states, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, and South Dakota. Twenty-eight hospitalizations have been reported. No deaths have been reported.
