400 people in 35 states have contracted salmonella, including three people in New York

Over 400 people have become sick due to a salmonella outbreak, but the cause is still unknown.

The total amount of people infected are 419 spread across 35 states with three in New York.

66 off those individuals have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.


Dates of illness are between June 19 of this year and Sept. 14.

Ages range between less than one years old to 91.

The CDC reports the number is likely much higher because many people do not report being ill after recovering without issue.

The CDC asks that anyone who suspects salmonella poisoning notify their doctor to report the illness to their local health department.

Usually people develop diarrhea, fevers, and stomach cramps within 12-72 hours of consumption. The symptoms last 4-7 days and many recover without treatment.

People at risk who may require hospitalization include children under 5, pregnant women, and adults over 65.
