Nationwide onion recall extended to HelloFresh, EveryPlate and more
If you haven’t already thrown out your onions, you should check your vegetables again.
The Food and Drug Administration has extended the onion recall, caused by a salmonella outbreak, to several more brands. The salmonella outbreak was first reported last week and initially only included fresh whole red, white or yellow onions imported from Chihuahua, Mexico and distributed by ProSource.
The recall now includes onions from HelloFresh, EveryPlate, Potandon Produce LLC and Keeler Family Farms.
HelloFresh said in a statement on Saturday they recommended disposing of onions received during the specified time period
“HelloFresh has been informed by one of its ingredient suppliers that it is conducting a voluntary recall of its onions due to the potential presence of salmonella bacteria,” the company said. “Please discard all onions received from July 7, 2021, through Sept. 8, 2021.”
The CDC is still working to determine if other onions and suppliers are linked to the outbreak.
Officials said recently both individuals and businesses should check onions and if it is unknown where they are from, throw them away. It is also recommended to wash and sanitize any surfaces that may have come in contact with these onions.
The CDC says to call your healthcare provider immediately if you have any of these severe salmonella symptoms:
- Diarrhea and a fever higher than 102°F
- Diarrhea for more than three days that is not improving
- Bloody diarrhea
- So much vomiting that you cannot keep liquids down
- Signs of dehydration, such as not peeing much
- Dry mouth and throat
- Feeling dizzy when standing up
Most people infected with salmonella experience diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps, the CDC says. Symptoms usually start six hours to six days after swallowing the bacteria and most people recover without treatment after four to seven days.
There has only been one reported case in Colorado.
