Multi-State Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Cucumbers Has Sickened More Than 300 People

September 5, 2015

The New Mexico Department of Health has reported that a Salmonella Poona outbreak linked to Mexican cucumbers has sickened more than 300 people from 27 states.

The state hardest hit by the outbreak is Arizona, with 60 reported cases. California and Utah have reported 51 and 30 illnesses, respectively.

The cucumbers are linked to Andrew & Williamson Fresh Produce, a San Diego-based produce distributor that imports cucumbers from Mexico. Andrew & Williamson supplies vegetables to many different retail outlets and restaurants.

Andrew & Williamson has announced a recall of its garden cucumbers, based on a epidemiologic analysis linking these cucumbers and the Salmonella Poona outbreak.
