Listeria outbreak linked to Italian-style deli meats kills 1, hospitalizes 9 across 3 states, CDC says
A listeria outbreak in Massachusetts, New York and Florida is linked to Italian-style deli meats like salami, prosciutto and mortadella.
A listeria outbreak linked to deli meats has sickened 10 people in three states with one reported death, according to federal health officials.
In an investigation notice, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said officials were investigating a multistate outbreak of listeria monocytogenes infections linked to deli meats, also known as lunch meat or cold cuts.
The CDC says a "specific type of deli meat and common supplier have not yet been identified" but, in interviews, nine of the ill people reported "eating Italian-style meats, such as salami, mortadella, and prosciutto" purchased prepackaged or sliced at deli counters.
