“Nine people were interviewed about foods they ate before getting sick, and eight reported eating or maybe eating this product,” the CDC says. “Investigators are still working to determine if additional products may be contaminated.”

Has there been a recall announced yet?

No recall has been issued, but toss out the salami sticks.

How widespread is this salmonella outbreak?

The salmonella outbreak has reached 20 people in eight states, with three of the sick people hospitalized. The CDC breakdown says California has eight illnesses; Michigan and Minnesota have three each; Illinois has two; Kansas, New York, New Jersey and Virginia have one each.

What is salmonella?

By the CDC’s count, salmonella strikes 1.35 million Americans each year, hospitalizes about 26,500 and kills 420. Most at risk for the worst effects are senior citizens, children under 5 and those with damaged immune systems. Most people get fever, vomiting, stomachaches and diarrhea starting around 12 to 72 hours after eating the tainted food and running for four to seven days.
