CDC says toss onions if you don’t know where they came from to avoid salmonella

Check your onions now: A salmonella outbreak impacting 37 states and sickening over 600 people in the United States is being linked to certain imported onions.

A warning from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said fresh whole red, white and yellow onions from Chihuahua, Mexico, were distributed in grocery stores and restaurants across the U.S. by ProSource Inc. They should be discarded.

Officials also urge consumers not to buy any whole red, white or yellow onions without stickers or packaging that show where they’re from, and to throw away any that are already in the home.
