- Taco Bell Linked To Salmonella Outbreak
According to The South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the popular fast food chain Taco Bell has been connected to a salmonella outbreak last fall. The outbreak left 68 people ill in 10 states.
The salmonella outbreak started in October of last year. The ten states that reported illnesses were Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Ohio and Tennessee. Thirty-one percent of the patients had to be hospitalized, but no deaths were reported.
On Wednesday, Taco Bell said in a statement that only some of the people that became ill ate at Taco Bell while others had not. The restaurant chain said that they believe the salmonella problem happened at the supplier level before it was delivered to restaurants. The January 19 report by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) backed up Taco Bell’s claims.
Originally, the CDC did not name Taco Bell in the report; they only referred to the restaurant as a Mexican-style fast food chain, identified as “Restaurant A”. Food Safety News was the first media outlet to identify Taco Bell as “Restaurant A”.
Some common symptoms of salmonella are diarrhea, fever, vomiting and abdominal cramps.
According to the CDC, 1 in 6 people become sick every year from contaminated food. Every year 3,000 people die from food-borne illness.
Taco Bell has been linked to two other outbreaks in the last six years.
