According to a news article on foodsafetynews.com, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is conducting investigations on four new foodborne illness outbreaks. However, the FDA has not released much information concerning these foodborne illness investigations.
The investigation information includes:
- An Outbreak Advisory and recall of seafood contaminated with Salmonella.
- One outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes.
- An outbreak of Salmonella Oranienburg.
The FDA has not issued an announcement concerning what food production sites are being inspected or which foods are being traced.
The ongoing outbreak investigations are being handled by the FDA’s CORE Response Teams in a variety of stages. According to the report, some of the outbreaks are active investigations, while other investigations are near completion. The table below has been abbreviated to show only active investigations.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration stated that it would issue public health advisories for any outbreak investigations that result in “specific, actionable steps for consumers.” These action items include avoiding or throwing out specific foods. Not all food product alerts or recalls result in an outbreak of foodborne illness, and not all outbreaks lead to recalls.
