Sushi May Be Source Of Salmonella Outbreak: CDC, FDA

4/4/2012 2:52 PM ET

The CDC and FDA are currently interviewing victims of a U.S. salmonella outbreak in order to find the bacteria's common source.

The outbreak, which took place between January 28th and April 2nd, has already sickened 90 people in 19 states and the District of Columbia.

The agencies have so far stated the common source may be the raw fish found in sushi; in particular, investigators have singled out spicy tuna rolls as highly suspect.

At present, consumers have not been told to avoid particular foods or restaurants. The CDC and FDA are expected to have updates soon.

Salmonella Bareilly infections result in abdominal cramps, diarrhea, and fever. Those with poor immune systems, the elderly, and infants are most susceptible to severe symptoms.
