Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Outpost Natural Foods in Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection and the City of Milwaukee Health Department suspended meat and food processing at Outpost on August 23, 2019. At that time, officials said that no illnesses were associated with foods produced at the company’s facility at 2826 South Kinnickinnic Avenue. Insanitary conditions were discovered during a routine inspection. Some ready-to-eat products tested positive for Salmonella during that inspection.

As of August 26, 2019, there are four people infected with the outbreak strains of Salmonella found at Outpost Natural Foods. Three of those patients were available for interviews by public health officials. Each said they ate food purchased at one of the Outpost Natural Food locations. Illness onset dates range from March 20 through May 6, 2019. There was no mention of any hospitalizations in the press release.

Officials did not name a food or foods that may be linked to this outbreak, and did not mention if they are investigating employee illnesses. Local health departments are assisting with the investigation.

The symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning include a fever, nausea, abdominal and stomach cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea that may be bloody and watery. Symptoms begin 12 to 72 hours after exposure to the pathogen. Most people are sick for about a week, and most people recover without medical attention. Some, however, do get sick enough, with sepsis or dehydration, to be hospitalized.

If you have eaten any foods purchased at Outpost Natural Foods and have been sick with these symptoms, see your doctor. You may be part of this Salmonella outbreak.
