Gills Diced Onions Recalled For Salmonella in Outbreak Investigation

Gills diced onions are being recalled in relation to the FDA’s investigation into a possible Salmonella outbreak. The recall notice states, “The FDA notified [the company] that the recalled products were part of the agency’s traceback investigation into an ongoing Salmonella Thompson outbreak.” There is a Salmonella Thompson outbreak on the FDA’s CORE Outbreak Investigation Table that has sickened at least 72 people. So far, the FDA has not officially named a product for that outbreak. The recalling firm is Gills Onions of Oxnard, California.

These onions are well beyond their use by dates, which are all in August 2023, and are no longer available for purchase. But consumers may have them frozen as an ingredient in casseroles or soups.

These recalled onions were produced on the same day and on the same production lines as the onions that tested positive for the pathogen.

Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling the onions. If you ate any of these onions and have been ill with the symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning, see your doctor.
