The agency noted that the exact source of the salmonella strain is unclear, and there is currently no requirement to fast for specific products, and it has not contacted any specific retailers that may be contaminated.

The CDC says symptoms of salmonella infection include abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, and a low risk of death. People with weakened immune systems, children under 5 years of age and adults over 65 are more likely to develop severe conditions, and salmonella symptoms can take up to two to four weeks to show off. U.S. public health officials are in talks with patients to investigate the cause of the recent outbreak.
