Symptoms of a Salmonella infection, which include fever, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal cramps, usually develop within six to 72 hours of eating contaminated food. The people sickened in this outbreak, who range in age from 19 to 61 years old, said they first became ill on dates ranging from June 10, 202, to June 15, 2021.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) used information from shopper cards and patient interviews to conduct a traceback investigation and identified BrightFarms salads as the source of the outbreak. Patients from both states said they bought BrightFarms salad in the days before they became ill.
Bright Farms of Rochelle, IL issued a recall for a variety of packaged salads on July 16. The salads, which are packaged in plastic clamshell containers, were distributed to four states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Some of them have “best by” dates as late as July 29, 2021.
