RELATED: CDC Investigating Outbreak of 125 Salmonella Infections Across 15 States
The initial recall, issued on Aug. 1, pertained to onions sold at Walmart, Kroger, Fred Meyer, Publix, Giant Eagle, Food Lion, and H-E-B, sold under a variety of names that can be seen at the FDA's recall page.
The CDC has warned consumers not to eat any onions from Thomson International Inc. "If you don't know where your onions are from, don't eat, serve, or sell them or any food prepared with them," they added.
Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps 6 hours to 6 days after being exposed to the bacteria, according to the CDC.
The illness typically lasts 4 to 7 days, and most people recover without treatment. Children ages 5 or younger, adults 65 years and older, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.
