There have been 49 new cases of salmonella reported in Canada linked to red onions imported from the US. The total number of cases reached 506.
The Public Health Department of Canada announced that 49 more Canadians had become ill due to a salmonella outbreak linked to red onions imported from the United States, bringing the current number of cases to a total of 506 as of September 14.
The Public Health Department of Canada said red onions imported from the United States could be linked to many other diseases, particularly the salmonella outbreak.
A large number of red onions, the origin of which was the United States, were sent back. Canadians are being warned to avoid consumption of red onions, especially imported from Thomson International Inc, where it is unclear where they come from.
With no disease detected in Canada’s red onion so far, experts say domestic products can be consumed with complacency.
