The CDC says it first identified this outbreak on September 2, 2021, and that it has been rapidly growing ever since. So far, the number of illnesses reported from each state is: Arkansas (2), California (3), Connecticut (3), Illinois (5), Iowa (1), Kansas (5), Maryland (4), Massachusetts (7), Michigan (2), Minnesota (13), Missouri (2), Nebraska (2), New Jersey (2), New Mexico (3), New York (1), North Carolina (1), North Dakota (1), Oklahoma (7), Pennsylvania (2), South Carolina (1), South Dakota (1), Texas (45), Utah (1), Virginia (9), and Wisconsin (4). But a food source has not yet been confirmed.
Focussing on the clusters of illnesses associated with restaurant food, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) collected purchasing records from the restaurants where the patients ate and is analyzing them to try and identify a common food distributor or supplier.
Restaurants are the most common setting for food poisoning outbreaks, according to the CDC. In Minnesota, there were at least two recent Salmonella outbreaks at restaurants. One, in June 2021, was at Don Julio’s restaurant in North Branch. The other at, Great Moon Buffet in West St. Paul, MN, sickened 17 people who ate at the restaurant in June and July.
