States with persons with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Saintpaul, by state of residence, April 15 to June 5, 2008.

Persons infected with the outbreak strain of <em>Salmonella</em> Saintpaul, United States,
by state, April 15 to June 5, 2008.

Since late April, 71 persons infected with Salmonella Saintpaul with the same genetic fingerprint have been identified in New Mexico (36 persons) and Texas (35 persons). These were identified because clinical laboratories in all states send Salmonella strains from ill persons to their State public health laboratory for characterization. Among the 51 persons who have been interviewed, illnesses began between April 23 and May 27, 2008. Patients range in age from 1 to 82 years; 49% are female. At least 19 persons were hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.

In addition, 34 persons with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Saintpaul have been reported since mid-April in residents of Arizona (7 persons), Colorado (1), Idaho (2), Illinois (12), Indiana (1), Kansas (3), Oklahoma (3), Utah (1), Virginia (2), and Wisconsin (2). Investigations are underway to determine if consumption of raw tomatoes is also associated with illness in these states.
