Hundreds of people have been sickened by a mysterious salmonella outbreak.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced on Thursday that it is looking into the cause of a salmonella epidemic that has sickened 419 individuals in 35 states.
Officials haven’t linked the illnesses to a specific dish, and they’re looking for aid from the public to figure out what’s causing them.
Sixty-six people have been admitted to hospitals out of the hundreds who have been affected. The outbreak has not resulted in any deaths.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said it began getting reports of persons sickened by salmonella on Aug. 30 and reached a peak of 25 cases per day in late August and early September.
Salmonella causes diarrhea, a temperature of more than 102 degrees Fahrenheit, vomiting, dehydration, a dry mouth and throat, and dizziness, among other symptoms. Symptoms appear 6 hours to 6 days after intake, according to the CDC.
About four to seven days after the disease begins, most people recover without therapy.
Serious sickness is more frequent in children under the age of five, individuals over the age of 65, and persons with compromised immune systems.
