TUESDAY, Oct. 27, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued an alert about a multistate outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes infections.
The outbreak of Listeria has been reported in three states. All 10 infected people were hospitalized and one death was reported in Florida.
All those infected have reported eating Italian-style meats, such as salami, mortadella, and prosciutto, either prepackaged deli meats or meats sliced at deli counters. The investigation is in process to see if a specific type of deli meat or common supplier is linked to illness.
