The company last imported the impacted onions on Aug. 27, but the onions can last for up to three months in storage and might still be in homes and businesses, the CDC said.According to the CDC, cases tied to the contaminated onions started appearing on Sept. 1. There have been 652 reported cases tied to the outbreak in 37 states as of Wednesday.

Texas, Oklahoma, Virginia, Maryland and Illinois had the highest number of reported cases. California, Oregon, South and North Dakota, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York also all had reported cases.

There have been 129 hospitalizations as a result of the outbreak but no deaths have been reported. The CDC said investigators are working to figure out if other onions and suppliers are linked to the outbreak.The CDC also advised businesses to check storage coolers for the impacted onions.

“If you can’t tell where they are from, throw them away,” the CDC said. “Wash and sanitize any surfaces that may have come in contact with these onions.”Most people infected with salmonelladevelop symptoms, including diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps, within six hours to six days of being exposed to the bacteria.

'Check yer onions'. Nice catch phrase. So: “Cooking an onion will kill the salmonella bacteria. The real risk is that the bacteria could be on the outside of the onion, which could spread to kitchen surfaces and other ingredients when it’s chopped.” No pico de gallo got it. I've been avoiding onions since before it was recommended and cool!

Hmmmmm…. Thank you, but an alarming percentage of Americans don’t believe the CDC right now, so I anticipate rates of salmonella poisoning to go up dramatically among red states and Republicans. brat2381 do your thing! iS tHiS a MaNdAtE WhAt AbOuT mY fReEdOm?

Cheesy Fall Flatbread With Smashed Grapes, Rosemary & Onions Recipe on Food52Strewn with smashed grapes, golden onions, BelGioioso Crescenza-Stracchino and Sharp Provolone cheeses, and peppery arugula, this autumnal flatbread is a cinch to make, thanks to store-bought pizza dough and simple yet impactful toppings. It’s inspired by grape focaccia, or schiacciata all’uva, that’s made in Tuscany during wine-grape harvest in the fall. The oven’s high heat not only ensures a crisp, golden crust, it also quickly caramelizes the grapes, rendering them soft, charred, and jammy-sweet in flavor. Smashing the grapes first not only boosts this caramelization process, it also helps the grapes adhere to the crust. BelGioioso’s Crescenza-Stracchino (a fresh, rindless, pleasantly tangy cheese that melts beautifully on top of flatbreads, pizzas, and sandwiches) and Sharp Provolone are the perfect counterparts to the roasted grapes. If you can’t find the Crescenza-Stracchino, BelGioioso Fresh Mozzarella cheese makes a fine substitute. Aside from the combination of sweet, salty, savory, and tangy flavors, what I love most about this flatbread is its versatility. Cut it into small squares or strips and serve as an appetizer for guests, either as a solo act or alongside a cheese and charcuterie board. Or serve large pizza-style slices for a simple, satisfying weeknight dinner. To make it more substantial, add shredded rotisserie chicken before baking, or top with ribbons of prosciutto straight out of the oven.
