The CDC said an outbreak of more than 100 of cases of Salmonella in 14 states has been linked to seafood distributed to restaurants and grocery stores in Colorado.

Out of a total of 102 reported cases, there have been 19 hospitalizations and no deaths, according to the CDC, which said only two of the illnesses occurred in people who did not live in Colorado or reported having traveled there.

According to the CDC, most people involved in the outbreak reported eating raw or cooked seafood in the week before their illness started.

Investigators found that Northeast Seafood Products in Denver supplied seafood to the restaurants and grocery stores where many of the people ate or shopped, according to the CDC. On Oct. 8, the company recalled seafood processed at its facility.

The types of seafood involved included haddock, monkfish, bone-in trout, grouper, red snapper, red rock cod, ocean perch, Pacific cod, halibut, coho salmon, Atlantic salmon portions, lane snapper, tilapia, all-natural salmon filets, Pacific sole and farm-raised striped bass.

The seafood products were distributed through Oct. 7 and sold at seafood counters in Albertsons, Safeway and Sprouts grocery stores in Colorado.

The CDC recommended that restaurants and grocery stores communicate this information to customers, while also washing and sanitizing all containers and surfaces the items may have come in contact with.

If the products have been taken home, the CDC recommended that they be thrown away or returned to where they were purchased. Additionally, all surfaces and containers should be washed and sanitized.

The CDC noted the symptoms of severe Salmonella:

  • diarrhea and a fever higher than 102° F;
  • diarrhea for more than 3 days that is not improving;
  • bloody diarrhea;
  • vomiting so much that you cannot keep liquids down; and
  • signs of dehydration, such as lack of urination, dry mouth and throat, and feeling dizzy.

Some people, including children aged younger than 5 years and adults aged 65 years or older, have weakened immune systems and may experience more severe symptoms, the CDC noted.

Most people infected experience diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps for 6 hours to 6 days, after ingesting the bacteria, it said. Most people recover without treatment after 4 to 7 days.
