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.
