A total of 93 cases have been reported in the outbreak, from nine states: Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin. Three thousand people have been hospitalized and no deaths have been reported.
"Caito Foods has temporarily suspended producing and distributing these products as the company and FDA continue to investigate," the FDA noted in its announcement.
"Because it is possible that the products could still be on store shelves, this recall extends to both retailers and consumers," the FDA announcement says. "Consumers should not consume the product and should immediately dispose of the remaining product."
The investigation is ongoing. Caito Foods does not respond immediately to calls for a declaration.
Symptoms usually begin 12 to 72 hours after consuming the bacteria and can last for four to seven days. They include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps, according to the CDC. Most people recover themselves. Patients experiencing severe diarrhea may require hospitalization. If severely ill patients are not treated, the disease may be fatal.
