2021 Seafood Salmonella Thompson Outbreak

On September 15, 2021, the FDA announced an investigation of a Salmonella Thompson outbreak that had sickened 77 people. On October 8, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), announced that the outbreak was linked to tainted seafood and sushi sold at restaurants and at Albertsons, Safeway, and Sprouts stores in Colorado.

The outbreak included illnesses in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

Although illnesses were reported from 15 states, most of the outbreak patients either lived in or visited Colorado during the week they got sick. By the time the outbreak ended in December, 115 people had been sickened and 20 people were hospitalized.
