ATLANTA — An outbreak of salmonella Saintpaul affecting 73 people in 18 states has been tied to imported cucumbers from two Mexican suppliers, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has barred any further cucumber imports from Daniel Cardenas Izabal and Miracle Greenhouse unless the suppliers can prove the vegetables are not contaminated with salmonella.
The CDC does not believe affected cucumbers from the two suppliers are still in the market.
Illnesses have been reported in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin.
