Nineteen cases of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 infection, including five hospitalizations, are possibly linked to a celery and onion diced blend used to make Costco rotisserie chicken salad, according to the CDC.

Based on available data, 14 (88%) of 16 ill people purchased or consumed rotisserie chicken salad from Costco the week before illness onset, which ranged from Oct. 6 to Nov. 3. Two ill patients developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, which is a type of kidney failure. No deaths were reported.
