As noted above, customers should immediately discard all onions received. Consumers are also advised to disinfect and sanitize surfaces and containers that may have come in direct contact with these products, as recommended by the FDA.
In the event that the onions have been consumed, please note that thoroughly cooking the product to 165ºF/74ºC, as instructed by the recipe, will kill the Salmonella bacteria.
Anyone experiencing symptoms, including but not limited to, fever, diarrhea, or nausea, should contact their healthcare provider immediately.
