The FDA, along with CDC and state and local partners, is investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Typhimurium infections linked to the consumption of BrightFarms Sunny Crunch Salad produced in the firm’s Rochelle, IL facility.
The FDA is working with BrightFarms to determine if there are additional products that could have been affected. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.
Consumers, restaurants, and retailers should not eat, sell, or serve BrightFarms Sunny Crunch Salad produced in Rochelle, IL. Sunny Crunch salads are packaged in a plastic clamshell container labeled as “fresh from Rochelle, IL.” According to the firm, these products were distributed in Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Indiana.
Consumers, restaurants, retailers, and distributors should check their refrigerators and throw away any of the products identified above.
If you purchased or used these products, you should use extra vigilance in cleaning and sanitizing any surfaces that may have come in contact with the product, to reduce the risk of cross contamination.
FDA recommends that anyone who has symptoms of salmonellosis contact their healthcare provider.
