About Salmonella infections
Food that is contaminated with Salmonella bacteria usually does not look, smell or taste spoiled. Anyone can become sick with a Salmonella infection, but infants, children, seniors and people with weakened immune systems are at higher risk of serious illness because their immune systems are fragile, according to the CDC.

Anyone who has eaten any of the recalled products and developed symptoms of Salmonella infection should seek medical attention. Sick people should tell their doctors about the possible exposure to Salmonella bacteria because special tests are necessary to diagnose salmonellosis. Salmonella infection symptoms can mimic other illnesses, frequently leading to misdiagnosis.

Symptoms of Salmonella infection can include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated food. Otherwise healthy adults are usually sick for four to seven days. In some cases, however, diarrhea may be so severe that patients need to be hospitalized.

Older adults, children, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems, such as cancer patients, are more likely to develop a severe illness and serious, sometimes life-threatening conditions.

It is possible for some people to be infected with the bacteria and to not get sick or show any symptoms, but to still be able to spread the infection to others.

Potandon Produce LLC of Idaho Falls, ID, is recalling Green Giant Fresh certain whole yellow, white and red onions because of possible Salmonella contamination.

The recalled onions were delivered directly to three UNFI retail distribution centers in Fargo, ND, Bismarck, ND and Hopkins, MN. Further distribution information was not included in the company’s recall notice posted by the Food and Drug Administration.

The recalled onions were sourced from ProSource Produce LLC, and have been traced to a Salmonella Oranienburg outbreak that has infected more than 650 people. Federal officials say the outbreak has been traced to the fresh onions from Mexico. The implicated onions originated with ProSource Produce Inc. of Hailey, ID, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
