Did you know that CDC: New 10-State Salmonella Outbreak Connected To Mushrooms?

Wood ear mushrooms

Wood ear mushrooms appear to be at fault behind the most recent Salmonella outbreak.

Friends, Romans, country-people, don’t lend anyone your ears. Your timber ear mushrooms, this is certain, until you’ve seen Thursday’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statement.

Under the CDC, there is now a Salmonella Stanley outbreak that’s so far triggered at the very least 41 individuals getting ill across 10 states. The states are Arizona, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. California has received probably the most reported cases with 25. The outbreak has led to at the least four hospitalizations. As it is the scenario with individuals admitting which they read the book 50 Shades of Gray, the number of reported instances probably underestimates the amount of actual situations. Oh, Stanley.

The ear-y link is that dried wood ear mushrooms distributed from Wismettac Asian Foods, Inc. appear to be to blame. Those decided to go to restaurants in six packs of five-pound bags that have been defined as Shirakiku brand name Black Fungus (Kikurage). The packages bore the next Universal Product Code (UPC) bar codes: 00074410604305, item #60403. The mushrooms originally originated in Asia.
