Nationwide salmonella outbreak linked to onions

A salmonella outbreak is currently affecting 22 states including Wyoming and is believed to be associated with onions.

The specific products with which the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have linked the outbreak are from the Gills Onions brand and have been recalled.

They include some lots of diced yellow onions, both three-pound bags and 8 oz cups; diced celery and onion mirepoix (10 oz); and diced red onions (8 oz cups).

The affected produce has use-by dates between August 8 and 28, 2023.

While this date is long passed, the CDC notes that some people may have frozen them to use later.
