A total of 127 Salmonella Oranienburg illnesses have been reported among people ranging in age from less than 1 year to 82 years old from August 3, 2021 to September 1, 2021. Health officials have interviewed 49 of the patients, 18 of them have been hospitalized. Some of the people interviewed said they ate at restaurants before they became ill.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has collected records from the restaurants where the sick people ate and is analyzing them to try and identify a common food distributor or supplier. They have not yet identified the food source or released the names of restaurants associated with this outbreak.
