Salmonella outbreak likely caused by contaminated onions sickens Minnesotans
October 21, 2021
A multistate outbreak of salmonella likely caused by contaminated onions has sickened nearly two dozen Minnesotans.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned Wednesday that fresh whole red, white and yellow onions imported from Chihuahua, Mexico, and distributed by ProSource Inc. are the likely source of the outbreak. Federal health officials advise people not to buy or eat these onions.
They also advise people to throw out any whole red, white or yellow onions that don't have a sticker or packaging.
