Of the 71 illnesses, 69 have been reported in six states in the US.

The epidemiological and traceback information collected thus far in the investigation indicates that Agroson's LLC of Bronx, New York, is the exclusive distributor of the imported papayas that likely made consumers from this outbreak sick.

The outbreak has been linked to pig ear dog treats after 38 of the ill people reported contact with a dog before getting sick.

45 people across California, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New York, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Wisconsin have been infected.

The illnesses in this outbreak began between January 14, 2019 and June 16, 2019. Of the 39 individuals for whom information is available, 12 (31%) have been hospitalized, but no deaths have been reported at his time.

The FDA has named Cavi brand whole fresh maradol papayas as the likely source of 71 cases of Salmonella Uganda.

The FDA advises that suppliers and distributors do not sell whole, fresh papayas from Agroson's LLC that are labeled under the Cavi brand.

As for what the CDC recommends going forward, it goes without saying that you should avoid Cavi brand papayas at all cost, even if some of them have been eaten without issue.

According to the CDC, a total of eight states have confirmed cases of Salmonella infection resulting from the consumption of papayas from Mexico under the Cavi brand name. The illness usually lasts four to seven days, and most people recover without treatment.
