Onion Recall Expands


As a follow on from the extensive recall of onions imported from Mexico by ProSource Produce of Hailey, Idaho, additional importers and distributors are recalling onions.  An extensive multi-drug resistant Salmonella Oranienburg outbreak has affected more than 808 in 37 states in the U.S. as of October 28th. To date 157 patients have been hospitalized out of 505 with full documentation.


Gwillimdale Farms of Bradford, Ontario is recalling onions imported from Mexico.  Product was sold in Ontario and neighboring Quebec with possible secondary distribution to other provinces.


Keeler Family Farms of Deeming, MN. is recalling onions imported by ProSource Produce.  Keeler product was distributed in 25 pound mesh sacks labeled “MVP”.  The quantity recalled has yet to be revealed.


Potandon Produce of Idaho Falls, ID. is recalling Green Giant brand onions that were acquired from ProSource Produce.  Product packed in two to five pound bags was distributed to distribution centers in Fargo, ND, Hopkins, MN, and Bismark, ND.


It is anticipated that additional cases will be confirmed given delays in diagnosis and recording. Many mild cases will not be counted since those affected will not seek medical attention.
