Salmonella Oranienburg is not a common strain of Salmonella. Previous outbreaks have been linked to shell eggs, chia powder, live poultry, and pet turtles.
Shell eggs produced by the Good Earth Egg Company of Bonne Terre, Missouri were linked to Salmonella Oranienburg outbreaks in 2015 and 2016. The people sickened ate eggs at restaurants and eggs at home before they became ill.
In 2016, eight people in three states were sickened Illinois (1), Kansas (1), and Missouri (6). In 2015, 52 people in six states were sickened with Salmonella infections after eating shell eggs from the company. The Good Earth Egg Company recalled all of its shell eggs on January 9, 2016, in response to that outbreak.
Symptoms of a Salmonella infection include abdominal pain, diarrhea that may be watery or bloody, vomiting, nausea, fever, chills, headache, and muscle aches. These symptoms usually begin six to 72 hours after eating contaminated food. Some people with Salmonella infections develop long-term complications including irritable bowel syndrome, reactive arthritis, and high blood pressure.
