Feds warn of salmonella tied to onions


A salmonella outbreak tied to onions has sickened more than 650 people in 37 states, U.S. health officials said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said at least 129 people have been hospitaliz­ed. No one has died. Nearly all of the illnesses were reported in August and September.

The outbreak has been traced to whole red, white and yellow onions imported from Chihuahua, Mexico, and distribute­d throughout the United States by ProSource Inc., the CDC said this week.
