The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, public health and regulatory officials in several states, and the U.S. Food & Drug Administration are investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Uganda infections linked to Cavi brand whole, fresh papayas distributed by Agroson's LLC.

The outbreak has been linked to pig ear dog treats after 38 of the ill people reported contact with a dog before getting sick.

The illnesses occurred in Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Texas.

Around 1.2 million people become sickened by salmonella each year resulting in 23,000 going to hospital and around 450 deaths.

The advisory goes further, saying "the evidence does not indicate that papayas from other distributors are implicated at this time", and that "FDA is narrowing its recommendations to consumers, restaurants, retailers, importers, suppliers and distributors, limited to Cavi brand whole, fresh papayas".

Wash and sanitize places where Cavi brand papayas were stored: countertops and refrigerator drawers or shelves. Agroson's markets the Cavi brand. The illness can last for between four and seven days. See your healthcare provider if you're concerned about symptoms such as high fever, diarrhea or frequent vomiting that prevents keeping liquid down, according to the CDC. Another patient from Texas who was also reported ill had traveled to NY before becoming ill.

In some people, the illness may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Most of the patients are older than 60.
