Salmonella outbreak linked to Yellow Maradol Papayas, One dead in NYC

Twelve people in New Jersey, along with 13 in NY, were infected.

Federal officials are investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Kiambu, which has infected 47 people from 12 states.

Among the 12 people that had been hospitalised because of the infection, United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported one to have died as well. Ages of the infected people range from less than a-year-old to 95 years old, 67 percent of whom are female.

In some cases, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. In the US, about 1.2 million people become ill with nontyphoidal Salmonella and over 450 people die from the disease each year.

The CDC noted that epidemiologic and laboratory evidence collected indicates that yellow Maradol papayas are the likely the source of the Salmonella outbreak.

An illness cluster has been identified in Maryland, where at least two people who do not live in the same household are infected. If you aren't sure if the papaya you bought is a yellow Maradol papaya, you can ask the place of purchase. In rarer cases, a salmonella infection can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics. Both samples were of the yellow Maradol papaya kind.

As part of an ongoing investigation, health officials discovered that several people in Maryland, where five cases have been confirmed, said they had eaten papayas from the same grocery store in the week before their illness began.

Health officials have issued a warning about a deadly salmonella outbreak linked to a tropical fruit.

Because of the results, the CDC recommends the public to not eat papaya, for restaurants to not serve papaya, and for sellers to refrain from selling them until further information is gathered.

The Centers for Disease Control launched a Salmonella outbreak alert for twelve states, including Texas. "When in doubt, throw it out", the CDC advised.
