Health officials have linked a multi-state salmonella outbreak to a recalled variety of mushrooms that were previously available across 32 states and Canada. The mushrooms, distributed by California-based Wismettac Asian Foods Inc, are a black fungus variety also called wood ear mushrooms.
The outbreak has sickened 41 people across 10 states, four of which required hospitalization, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The illnesses occurred from Jan. 21 to Aug. 26, and patients ranged in age from 2 to 74 years old. Four illness clusters were traced to restaurants serving ramen in three states, and information pertaining to where the mushrooms came from lead officials to Wismettac Asian Foods, Inc.
