In US and Canada, health authorities have found an infection which transmits through onions
The citizens of the United States and Canada would have never thought that onions can cause a concern for them. The health authorities have asked the citizens to discard onions supplied by California-based Thomson International Inc
The onions supplied by Thomson International Inc have linked a salmonella bacteria infection with the bulb.
According to reports, the salmonella bacteria are seen in animals. If the bacteria get inside a human, it will cause salmonellosis, an infection that attacks the intestine.
Which will also cause other physical troubles like diarrhoea, fever, vomiting, abdominal pain, bleeding in stool and nausea
The infection hits senior citizens, and children below the age of five. The reports also say that 1% of infected people succumb to the infection.
Salmonella can enter a human body through food or water. Here the bacteria were spread through contaminated onions, cultivated by Thomson International.
Taking action, the Canadian government put advisory to restaurants, retailers, hotels, and the general public, which read, “Do not eat, use, sell or serve any red, yellow, white, and sweet yellow onions grown by Thomson International Inc. of Bakersfield, California, USA, or any products made with these onions.”
In United States, the authorities have advised people to throw away onions if they did not know where it was produced
