CDC: Salmonella outbreak across 17 states linked to Italian-style meats
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating two outbreaks of salmonella across 17 states, including New York.
Both are linked to Italian-style meats, like salami and prosciutto, and other meats found in antipasto or charcuterie assortments.
Thirty-six cases have been reported, one in New York. Twelve people have been hospitalized.
The number of sickened people is likely higher because many people who get salmonella recover without seeking medical treatment.
The CDC is working to determine what meat brands are affected, and if both outbreaks came from the same source.
