Update: New Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Organic Coconut Sold at Natural Grocers
March 20, 2018 – The CDC has launched a new investigation into a salmonella outbreak linked to “Coconut Smiles” from Natural Grocers, Inc., a Lakewood, Colorado, firm whose products tested positive for the same strain of salmonella bacteria as the patients who fell ill, according to the FDA.
What’s the problem?
After the CDC first announced the outbreak on Feb. 22, Iowa-based Triple T Specialty Meats, Inc. recalled more than 20,000 pounds of potentially contaminated pre-made chicken salad, according to CNN. The salad was produced from Jan. 2 to Feb. 7, and sold in containers priced by weight from deli counters at Fareway grocery stores in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, and South Dakota.
