Outbreak of Salmonella infections linked to red onions imported from the United States

While onions are generally considered safe to eat during pregnancy, a recent advisory from Public Health Agency of Canada states that red onions imported from US have a risk of salmonella infection based on 450+ reported cases across Canada. While salmonella infection is not considered very serious in healthy humans, it can be very risky and even fatal to unborn baby for pregnant women.

The advisory specifically says “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.”

Just to be safe, if you are eating onions imported from the US, make sure they are thoroughly cooked to avoid risk of infection.
