San Diego Salmonella Outbreak Prompts Veggie Recall

By Robert Kahn on September 19, 2015 - Comments off

Food RecallA California based produce distributor is recalling its line of cucumbers after customers were sickened with salmonella between July and August of this year. Close to 300 people in 27 states are suspected to have been made ill by Andrew & Williamson Fresh Produce of San Diego. One death, involving an elderly San Diego woman, has been connected to the outbreak as well. The company has issued a mandatory recall for all of its “Limited Edition” cucumbers that were grown in Mexico due to fears they may be infected with salmonella. The vegetable distributor is working with health officials to determine if their products were the source of the outbreak.

The cucumbers in question were distributed to over half the country, from Alaska to Texas. In total, 285 cases are believed to be connected to the outbreak, with investigators continuing to monitor the situation. A spokesperson for Andrew & Williamson stated, “The safety and health of the consumers who buy our products have always been the highest priority for us. We’ve invested millions to make sure our food safety systems are effective and up to date.” Currently half of the individuals believed to be sickened by the cucumbers were under the age of 18.
