FDA Investigated Multistate Outbreak of Salmonella Infections Linked to Sprouts

The FDA, CDC, and state and local officials investigated a multi-state outbreak of Salmonella infections. CDC reports that epidemiologic evidence indicates that raw sprouts were the likely source of this outbreak.

The FDA collected invoices and/or samples from growers and seed suppliers that produced the sprouts. All the samples that were collected subsequently tested negative. The FDA continues to work with these facilities to address potential issues that may have contributed to contamination during production.
