Salmonella in Peanut Butter – Its Impact on One Woman

On February 14, 2007 the FDA announced a nationwide outbreak of Salmonella in ConAgra peanut butter produced at the Sylvester, Georgia plant.  The CDC eventually reported that 714 people suffered culture-confirmed Salmonella Tennessee infection with a genetic pattern matching one of the three strains associated with the ConAgra outbreak.  Seventy-three percent of cases are female, and twenty percent of all cases required hospitalization as a result of their illnesses.  Onset dates ranged from August 1, 2006 to July 19, 2007, and forty-eight states reported at least one confirmed case.  This is the story of one of those cases.
