Federal health officials are investigating a four-state Salmonella Paratyphi outbreak that includes 10 illnesses associated with a Nekter Juice Bar in Woodbury, Minnesota. When the Minnesota Health Department discovered the outbreak in October, a total of nine illnesses were associated with customers of that Nekter (NéktƏr) location who reported ordering juices, smoothies and bowls before they became ill.
Since that time, the outbreak has grown to include 10 confirmed cases in Minnesota and eight additional cases in three other states. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has not disclosed whether the illnesses outside Minnesota are also associated with Nekter locations or which other states are reporting cases. The CDC and state health officials are still working to identify a specific food source for the outbreak.

Symptoms of a Salmonella infection, called salmonellosis, include fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. These symptoms usually develop six to 72 hours after contaminated food is ingested. Salmonella Paratyphi can cause a life-threatening illness called paratyphoid fever.
The ingredients used to prepare Nekter menu items include fresh fruits and vegetables, cashew milk, peanut butter, almond butter, chia seeds, hemp seeds, hemp hearts, coconut flakes, agave nectar, granola, goji berries and more. Several of these ingredients have been associated with previous Salmonella outbreaks.
