October 21, 2021 — Onions from Mexico have been linked to an outbreak of Salmonella that infected more than 650 people in 37 states.
Fresh whole red, white, and yellow onions that were grown in Mexico and imported to the U.S. by ProSource Inc. from Chihuahua, Mexico, may be contaminated with Salmonella Oranienburg.
These onions were typically sold at grocery stores and restaurants. They may have a sticker labeled with “ProSource” and “Mexico.”
To be safe, health officials are advising everyone to throw out any unlabeled onions and disinfect surfaces that came in contact with the onions.
As of October 18, there have been 652 illnesses confirmed in 37 states between May 31 and September 30, 2021, according to the outbreak investigation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
ProSource Inc. said the onions were last imported on August 27, but because they have a shelf-life of up to 3 months, the onions may still be in consumers’ homes and businesses.
