Hannaford Supermarkets Salmonella Hamburger Outbreak

At least 19 people have become ill with an antibiotic-resistant strain of Salmonella linked to fresh in-store ground beef sold at Hannaford Supermarkets in the Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported illnesses in the following states: Hawaii (1), Kentucky (1), Massachusetts (1), Maine (4), New Hampshire (6), New York (5), and Vermont (1). At least Seven Salmonella victims were hospitalized.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) many of the people who became ill bought fresh hamburger contaminated with Salmonella Typhimurium between October 12 - November 20, 2011. However a recall was instituted that included fresh ground beef with sell-by dates as late as December 17, 2011. The FSIS warned that some consumers may still have some at-risk hamburger stored in their freezers.
