Before anyone starts panicking: these 16 cases occurred in the last 17 months dating back to APR ‘21. Can’t say I’m all that concerned.

>The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Wednesday announced 16 confirmed listeria outbreak cases have been reported by six states – seven cases in New York, three in Maryland, two in Illinois and Massachusetts, as well as one each in New Jersey and California. The first case was reported on April 17, 2021, with the most recent one reported on Sept. 29, 2022.

And over 6 states. Only cases 7 here in NY. You’re all (likely) fine.

Bc production is done in so many diff places and then packaging can cross contaminate…all along the way possible contamination with lesser regulations of food set in place by Trump,and then product is sold under the multiple brand names sometimes that have no obligation to look into it unless it’s their brand.

FYI for those that goes to any of their NYC locations but do note other stores might have same issue. Wish they list the deli meat brand/supplier.

>But health investigators do not believe NetCost Market delis are the only source of the outbreak, as a specific source of it has yet to be confirmed and some who got sick did not shop at the grocery chain.

can you nuke it or something

e: google says you can

> Order your favorite sandwich as a melt, or nuke the deli meats you bought in the microwave. The heat will kill any listeria bacteria potentially lingering there. (Your food should reach an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit.)

I mean, for each hospitalized person, how many merely had an “unpleasant” day visiting the toilet that did not warrant going to the hospital?
