On October 20, 2021, the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) posted a Food Safety Alert for a Salmonella outbreak linked to onions. The CDC and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) epidemiologic and traceback data shows that illnesses in this outbreak are linked to whole red, white and yellow onions imported from Chihuahua, Mexico. Investigators are working to determine if other onions are linked to this outbreak.
