salmonella alert - onions
8/03/20

As many have heard, the FDA has been investigating an outbreak of Salmonella in multiple states. The CDC started receiving reports of illnesses on July 10th, 2020. They have identified Thomson International, located in Bakersfield, CA, as the likely source. The FDA's investigation has determined that red onions are the likely cause of the current outbreak. Thomson International has recalled all varieties of onions shipped on or after May 1st, due to the risk of cross-contamination. 

At Produce Express, we source our onions from Onions Etc., located in Stockton, CA. Onions Etc. is currently sourcing all of their products from farms in Northern California, Oregon, and Mexico. Onions Etc. does not source onions from Thomson International for resale to Produce Express.

We will provide updates as they are available. As always, we appreciate your business and loyal support.
