According to the CDC, since the last update on November 1, 2019, one additional ill person has been reported from Washington. As of November 19, 2019, a total of 11 people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Dublin have been reported from seven states – Washington, California, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Iowa.
Illnesses started on dates ranging from August 8, 2019, to October 20, 2019. Ill people range in age from 39 to 74 years, with a median age of 66. Seventy-three percent of ill people are male.
Of nine ill people with information available, eight (89%) were hospitalized. One death has been reported in California. In five (45%) ill people, Salmonella was found in samples of blood, which indicates their illnesses may have been more severe. Salmonella Dublin is known to commonly cause more severe illnesses than other Salmonella strains, particularly in older people.
USDA-FSIS and state partners traced the source of some of the ground beef eaten by one ill person in this outbreak to Central Valley Meat Co., Inc. On November 15, 2019, Central Valley Meat Co., Inc. recalled 34,222 pounds of ground beef produced that may be contaminated with Salmonella Dublin.
At this time, a single supplier, distributor, or brand of ground beef has not been identified that can account for all the illnesses in this outbreak. The investigation is ongoing and CDC will update the public if more information becomes available.
