About the Salmonella Outbreak
More than 125 consumer peanut butter products, from more than 70 companies, have been recalled in the U.S. King Nut Peanut Butter salmonella outbreak.
It takes up to three weeks for cases to be reported to the CDC, so the most recent person reported sick fell ill on Jan 8, more cases are expected. So far, the CDC has received reports of six deaths and 107 hospitalizations among the 486 people sickened in 43 U.S. states and one Canadian province.
The FDA has announced that at least one brand of pet products -- PetSmart's Great Choice Dog Biscuits -- is made with peanut paste linked to the salmonella outbreak. The FDA says more human and pet products are likely to be recalled as the agency's peanut probe continues.
In an effort to find out how they got sick, the CDC interviewed 57 people ill with the outbreak strain of salmonella and compared their food-consumption histories to 399 healthy people.
Results showed that sick people outside institutions tended to have eaten the Kellog's Austin and Keebler brands of peanut-butter crackers already linked to contaminated peanut paste. Kellog's recalled the products as soon as it learned of the possible contamination, the day before the CDC investigation began.
Adults and children sickened at hospitals, nursing homes, and schools tended to have eaten the King Nut brand of peanut butter. In all 14 institutions for which detailed information is available, the CDC and state health departments traced salmonella illnesses to the King Nut brand of peanut butter.
King Nut peanut butter is sold in large containers only to institutions. No commercial peanut butter brands sold in grocery stores have been linked to the salmonella outbreak.
The FDA is continuing an ongoing investigation of the King Nut and Parnell's Pride Peanut Butter Salmonella contamination.
