Salmonella Bareilly Outbreak Grows to 100 Cases

The CDC has updated the case numbers in the nationwide outbreak of Salmonella Bareilly. Now 100 people have been sickened with the outbreak strain of that rare bacteria.

This is the official case distribution from the CDC:

  • Alabama (2)
  • Arkansas (1)
  • Connecticut (5)
  • District of Columbia (2)
  • Georgia (4)
  • Illinois (9)
  • Louisiana (2)
  • Maryland (10)
  • Massachusetts (4)
  • Mississippi (1)
  • Missouri (1)
  • New Jersey (7)
  • New York (23)
  • North Carolina (2)
  • Pennsylvania (3)
  • Rhode Island (4)
  • South Carolina (3)
  • Texas (3)
  • Virginia (5)
  • Wisconsin (9)

The case count increased from April 5 to April 6, 2012 in the following states:

  • Connecticut (1)
  • Illinois (1)
  • New Jersey (1)
  • Pennsylvania (1)
  • Wisconsin (1)
  • Maryland (2)

The Alabama Department of Health told Food Poisoning Bulletin on April 6, 2012 that there is one additional probable case, but further information was not available. On that same day, the Department of Health in Rhode Island told Food Poisoning Bulletin in a phone interview that there are now five confirmed cases in that state, up one case from April 5. That case is not yet included in the official CDC count.

No single source has been identified in the outbreak, but officials suspect spicy tuna sushi rolls, sashami, or other raw foods may be to blame. A majority of the patients who were interviewed said they ate that type of food in the days before becoming ill.
