Check your onions again: FDA announces more recalls

Health

Two more recalls have been announced involving onions.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is urging people to throw out any onions from HelloFresh and EveryPlate received July 7 through Sep. 8. The companies said they have been informed by one of their suppliers that they’re voluntarily recalling onions due to potential salmonella.

Earlier this week, the CDC announced that fresh whole onions were the cause of a salmonella outbreak that traced to 37 states across the U.S. The company ProSource imported the onions from Chihuahua, Mexico, and distributed them to restaurants and grocery stores throughout the United States.

ProSource said the possibly tainted onions were last imported Aug. 27, but because of the vegetable’s long shelf life they may still be on shelves.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is still investigating the nationwide salmonella outbreak that has been linked to onions from Mexico. More than 600 people have reportedly gotten sick; no one has died.

If you are experiencing any symptoms, health officials encourage you to contact your healthcare provider immediately.
