Investigation Update: Outbreak of Salmonella Typhimurium Infections, 20082009
Ohio Department of Health ^ | Jan 23, 2009 | Staff

Posted on 01/25/2009 11:50:34 AM PST by Pontiac

Ohio has taken the lead in race to have the most cases of salmonella. As of 9PM EDT, Wednesday, January 22, 2009, 491 persons infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Typhimurium have been reported from 43 states. The number of ill persons identified in each state is as follows: Alabama (1),
Arizona (10),
Arkansas (4),
California (62),
Colorado (12),
Connecticut (9),
Georgia (6),
Hawaii (3),
Idaho (11),
Illinois (6),
Indiana (4),
Iowa (2),
Kansas (2),
Kentucky (3),
Maine (4),
Maryland (8),
Massachusetts (42),
Michigan (25),
Minnesota (35),
Missouri (9),
Mississippi (3),
Nebraska (1),
New Hampshire (11),
New Jersey (19),
New York (18),
Nevada (5),
North Carolina (6),
North Dakota (10),
Ohio (67),
Oklahoma (2),
Oregon (7),
Pennsylvania (14),
Rhode Island (4),
South Dakota (2),
Tennessee (9),
Texas (6),
Utah (5),
Vermont (4),
Virginia (20),
Washington (13),
West Virginia (2),
Wisconsin (3),
and Wyoming (2).
Additionally, one ill person was reported from Canada.

Among the persons with confirmed, reported dates available, illnesses began between September 14, 2008 and January 8, 2009. Patients range in age from <1 to 98 years; 48% are female. Among persons with available information, 22% reported being hospitalized. Infection may have contributed to seven deaths.


The outbreak can be visually described with a chart showing the number of persons who became ill each day. This chart is called an epidemic curve or EPI Curve The epi curve and information about interpreting it may be found here. It shows that most illnesses began after October 1, 2008. Illnesses that occurred after December 22, 2008 may not yet be reported due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported. This takes an average of 2 to 3 weeks.

You kind of have to play with this search fuction for food recalls because it is not set up specifically for the salmonella out break but is a universal recall search engine for food recalls.

Food Recall Search

This list of cases by Ohio county is relatively new on the ODH website. I looked for it a few weeks ago and could not find a list anywhere.

Rat feces in your shelled peanut stocks that are intended for incorporation into "peanut butter" flavored ingredients.

The school and airline bans were based on peanut allergies. This problem is clearly contamination with infected material. It's a different problem.

How in the hell do you get salmonella from peanuts?

You don't, generally. Peanuts used to make peanut butter or paste or other types of peanut products are roasted to around 350 degrees for a period of time that kills all bacteria, including salmonella.

The problem here is that the Peanut Corporation of America's plant in Blakely, GA, wasn't being run with the proper controls in place to avoid contamination further down the line in the process. My understanding is that the actual infestation was found by the FDA/CDC to have been in a filler head at the end of the production line, indicating that poor sanitation controls were in place. Something caused the contamination (perhaps particles of bird droppings got on something that made it onto the equipment) and this particular plant was cutting corners when it shouldn't have been.

Their lax sanitation practices have killed several people and sickened hundreds, and is costing the industry millions of dollars in the short term, and perhaps tens or hundreds of millions in the long term by frightening the general public about peanuts.

This also happened back in 2006, I believe; the culprit turned out to be a leaky roof, allowing bird droppings to filter down to the ceiling panels, which eventually leaked onto the production equipment, allowing salmonella into the product. In neither case (2006 or this outbreak) did peanuts have anything to do with the problem, it could as easily have been in a butter factory or a cookie dough manufacturer or an ice cream plant. Unfortunately, peanuts are getting the black eye when there's really no reason they should.

It's one damned factory run by a family that has had a history of less-than-stellar corporate practices, and the rest of us are suffering because of it. I hope someone ends up in jail over this.

In China, they gave the death penalty to some people willfully involved in the melamine scandal. I'm not suggesting the same should take place here, but someone has to pay.

Another excellent idea that has been essentially killed by lazy leftist news reporters that would rather publish a anti-nuke’s press release than do the work required by true investigative reporting.

This is the first I have looked into the matter.

My initial reaction was “how in the hell does peanuts support salmonella?”

I suppose anything can be tainted if you take a dump in it

Food microbiology is an interesting and somewhat high risk field. Our "summer project" in food microbiology was the creation of sauerkraut. The prof related a very expensive "oops" when 10 tons of sauerkraut was contaminated with Serratia marcescens. The result was 10 tons of pink sauerkraut from the red pigment created by the organisms. The batch had to be discarded.

Have a look a food "safety" standards. There are rules about how many rodent droppings per pound or rodent hairs per pound are permitted. It's not something you want to read before mealtime...unless you need inspiration to eat less.

Well, perhaps not exactly how I would have put it, but essentially you're correct.

I've spent a huge chunk of the last week and a half nailing down every aspect of our supply chain at work, covering every possible base to make sure that there isn't even a tenuous connection between one of our products that uses a lot of peanut butter and the PCA plant in Blakely. It's been a huge PIA, but at least we're clean.

Yup, there's one particular brand that used a component produced at the factory in question.

Well, considering the 2006 peanut butter outbreak, the spinach outbreak last year followed by the FDA destroying the tomato industry when it wasn't even the tomatoes (it was peppers), "one off" doesn't quite describe it. It's just something that happens when corners are cut.

There are reasons that food processing plants have sanitation standards and QC testing in place. It's when people take shortcuts to save money, or time, or make quota, etc., that things like this happen. You can't be too careful when you make a product that people put into their bodies, whether it's food, nutritional supplements, drugs, or medical devices. It's truly a case of "better safe than sorry."

Salmonella is an enteric bacterium. Ditto for Escherichia coli. Sanitation "engineers" look for evidence of "coliform" bacteria in water supplies as evidence of fecal contamination. Bird droppings in to open wells, runoff of water from animal grazing areas and rodent droppings are common sources.

Everyone has E. coli in their intestinal tract. We depend upon E. coli to manufacture vitamin K to help our blot clot properly. The "bad boys" in the E. coli world are E. coli O157:H7 and E. coli O129:H19. They produce exotoxins that damage the kidneys. This toxin is virtually identical to the one produced by another enteric bacterium, Shigella dysenteria. It typically only takes 50 viable E. coli organisms to "set up housekeeping" in your intestinal tract.

Bon appetit!

It may not be true, but I have been pretty convinced since I was a yoot that EVERY SINGLE EGG and EVERY CHICKEN YOU BUY has some salmonella in it.
It's all in the handling and cooking.

Well as far as the eggs go the bacteria is on the egg not in it. If you rinse the egg off with cold water it is usually enough to get the bacteria off the egg enough that it will not be a problem.

Vifon noodles had a similar incident but the food was not contaminated during manufacture. it was gotten into in storage by mice.

No one got sick. Damage to the packages was apparent and it was disgarded.

It has to be difficult to keep critters out of huge stockpiles.

I love this stuff for an instant noodle. I add fresh meat and vegetable

Tossing my Lance Toast Chee’s!

Why? This is a list of brands NOT affected by FDA recall. These are the clean products, not the ones you have to worry about.

“I suppose anything can be tainted if you take a dump in it.”Good point.Poor personal hygene and/or sloppy(unsanitary)work practices.The problem is compounded when food is processed in mass and then shipped across the country.

Ya know? I try to buy locally, but we all eat mass produced food and it is a bit skeery not knowing your source

Either version is evidence of your somewhat, um... different taste.
