CDC: Toss Your Onions!
Written by Site Hub on October 21, 2021
If you have purchased onions recently from the grocery store, you may want to have another look at them. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a salmonella outbreak is impacting 37 states, and sickening over 600 people in the US, which is all being linked to certain imported onions. The onions in question that need to be discarded are fresh whole red, white and yellow onions from Chihuahua, Mexico. These onions were distributed to grocery stores and restaurants across the US by ProSource Inc. So if you are unsure of where the onions came directly from, your safest bet is to toss them.
