Raw Tuna May Have Caused Latest Salmonella Outbreak
When you’re out for a meal with your family or out on a date, you eat your food without any consideration of what could potentially be wrong with the meal. You trust that the food is handled correctly, comes to you fresh and without anything that can cause illness. But, sometimes the food you eat does cause disease.
A recent article on KMOV.com talks about the most recent outbreak of salmonella poisoning. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the outbreak started in March and has made at least fifty-three people sick in different parts of the country. The sickness has affected people of various ages, including a one-year-old.
According to the article, most of the victims reported eating sushi with raw tuna the week before they became sick. While no one has died, at least ten of the reported people who have contracted the illness have been hospitalized. The FDA is monitoring tuna more closely, trying to trace the source of the outbreak. The local and state health departments continue to interview those who have the disease to aid in the long process.
These people ate the sushi expecting to be able to be satisfied with their meal and not expecting to be sick by it.
