The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers and food sellers across the country to throw out a batch of onions that is believed to have contributed to a large-scale salmonella outbreak.

The FDA and CDC have said that Mexican-imported onions were the culprit behind a salmonella outbreak that has spread to 37 states. Officials urged people to throw away onions bought from ProSource over the summer in order to keep themselves safe.

Officials urged people to throw away onions bought from ProSource over the summer in order to keep themselves safe. Here, a stock photo of some onions can be seen.

While the FDA's investigation is ongoing, the agency said that the outbreak had been traced back to red, white, and yellow onions that were distributed by Idaho-based ProSource Produce. The onions in question were reportedly imported from Chihuahua, Mexico, from July 1 to August 27.

ProSource has agreed to recall onions that it had imported from those dates, the FDA said.

These onions were then sold to various retailers across the country, including restaurants, grocery stores, and fresh markets, allowing the tainted produce to make its way to consumers' homes and businesses.

The FDA is now working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help slow the spread of the diseased onions.

The salmonella outbreak has resulted in at least 652 cases across 37 U.S. states, of which 129 required hospitalization. At the time of publishing, no deaths from the outbreak had been reported.

According to epidemiological data, however, the true number of cases may be much higher, as the CDC noted that it can take up to four weeks to determine if a person sick with salmonella is part of an outbreak.

In order to keep the public safe, officials said that any red, white, or yellow onions that were purchased from ProSource during the time period in question should be immediately discarded.
