'We recognize that the recalled onions or foods with those onions as an ingredient could be in consumers’ freezers,' stated the recall notice. 'Anyone who has an expired, recalled product in their possession should not consume it and should destroy or discard it.'
UTAH — A line of diced onion products has been recalled following a salmonella outbreak that has impacted over a dozen Utahns.
Gills Onions, a California-based company, voluntarily recalled its Gills Onions branded fresh diced onions products earlier this week due to potential salmonella contamination.
According to the recall notice, the potentially contaminated products had expiration dates in August 2023, and are no longer available in stores.
“We recognize that the recalled onions or foods with those onions as an ingredient could be in consumers’ freezers,” stated the recall notice. “Anyone who has an expired, recalled product in their possession should not consume it and should destroy or discard it.”
So far, 73 illnesses have been reported, and 15 individuals have been hospitalized as a result of the outbreak. Utah and California had the highest number of reported cases with 17 each.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the true number of sick people in this outbreak is likely much higher than reported, as many people recover without medical care and are not tested for salmonella.
The CDC recommends the following if you have come into contact with a potentially contaminated product:
- Wash items and surfaces that may have touched the recalled onion products using hot soapy water or a dishwasher.
Call your healthcare provider 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
