Salmonella Saintpaul Outbreak in Southeast Michigan Involving Sprouts
Michigan Ag Connection - 04/23/2009
The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) is issuing a public health alert regarding illness from Salmonella infections among people who have reported raw alfalfa sprouts consumption in southeast Michigan. At this time, MDCH is recommending that people avoid consumption of raw alfalfa sprouts until they have further information about the origin of the contaminated sprouts. Michigan currently has 16 confirmed Salmonella Saintpaul cases from six jurisdictions in southeast Michigan (Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw, and Wayne Counties; City of Detroit). The illness onset dates range from March 23 to April 6. There have been two known hospitalizations. Ten of the 16 people reported consumption of raw alfalfa sprouts at sandwich shops in southeast Michigan. MDCH is working closely with local health departments, the Michigan Department of Agriculture (MDA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to determine the source of the outbreak. The Michigan cases are presenting the same genetic fingerprint as uncovered in the Midwest earlier this year, which resulted in a recall of alfalfa sprouts.
