This recall was issued following the expanded onion recall initiated by Thomson International, Inc., which resulted in a recall by Spokane Produce’s onion supplier.
As of August 9, 2020, a salmonella outbreak linked to Thomson onions has expanded to 43 states, sickening at least 640 people, including 85 hospitalizations, according to the FDA. Many of the reported cases were in the Western states of Utah (90); Oregon (85); California (76); and Montana (52). There have also been 41 cases reported in Illinois.
The recalled salsa was distributed via retail stores from 5/13/20 to 8/10/20 in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington State.
Consumers who purchased any recalled salsa should throw it away or return it to the point of purchase for a refund.
Anyone concerned about a potential food poisoning illness from eating recalled salsa should call their doctor immediately.
