CDC Warns of Salmonella From Cheese in the US, Mexico

A salmonella outbreak that ran from June 2018 to March 2019 was resistant to two drugs commonly used to treat the infection, drawing a warning from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday.

The CDC said in a new report that Salmonella Newport was not responsive to azithromycin and ciprofloxacin, infecting 255 people — including 60 hospitalizations and two deaths — in 32 states.

The strain of salmonella could have been started by U.S.-bred beef and Mexico-manufactured soft cheese. This could mean the infection is present in both countries.
