CDC and FDA Investigate E. coli Outbreak

Nov 22, 2019 | Michelle Shapiro

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), public health and regulatory officials in several states, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are investigating a multistate outbreak of E. coli 0157:H7 infections. The source of the outbreak has not been determined. A total of 17 ill people have been reported from eight states. Seven ill people were hospitalized, but no deaths have been reported.

The Maryland Department of Health identified E. coli O157 in an unopened package of Ready Pac Bistro® Bowl Chicken Caesar Salad collected from a sick person’s home in Maryland. Laboratory testing is ongoing to determine if the E. coli found in the salad is genetically similar to the E. coli found in sick people in this outbreak.

Ill people in Maryland have reported eating Ready Pac Bistro® Bowl Chicken Caesar Salad. Do not eat or sell Ready Pac Bistro® Bowl Chicken Caesar Salads with a “Best By” date of October 31, 2019. If you have this salad at home, do not eat it and throw it away. Talk to your doctor if you have symptoms of an E. coli infection.

Other salads have been recalled. Get the list.
