US: Multistate outbreak of Salmonella poona infections linked to imported cucumbers

US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:· Since the last update on September 29, 2015, 61 more ill people have been reported from 24 states. Given the 14-day shelf life of cucumbers and the gap between when someone gets sick and when that illness is reported to public health, it is not unexpected to continue to see illnesses reported after the recalls.

· A death has been reported from Oklahoma, bringing the total number of deaths to four.

· Maryland was added to the list of states with ill people, bringing the total number of states to 35.
