The FDA, along with CDC and state and local partners, is investigating a multi-state outbreak of Salmonella infections linked to whole, fresh, red, yellow, or white onions. FDA’s investigation is ongoing but has identified ProSource Produce, LLC of Hailey, Idaho, and Keeler Family Farms of Deming, New Mexico, as suppliers of potentially contaminated whole, fresh onions imported from the State of Chihuahua, Mexico.

The onions in question were sold to restaurants, food service locations, wholesalers, and retail or grocery stores throughout the United States. The investigation is ongoing to determine the source of contamination and if additional products or firms are linked to illness. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.

The current advice for restaurants, retailers and consumers is do not eat, sell or serve recalled onions, or products containing recalled onions. All recalled onions were supplied by ProSource Produce LLC and Keeler Family Farms and imported from the State of Chihuahua, Mexico between July 1, 2021 and August 31, 2021. If your onion has a label and it is not from one of the brands listed originating from the State of Chihuahua, Mexico imported during this timeframe, it is not part of the recalls. If you cannot tell if your onions were recalled, do not eat, sell, or serve them and throw them out.

Recalled onions were distributed under the following brands:

  • Big Bull
  • Peak Fresh Produce
  • Sierra Madre
  • Markon First Crop
  • Markon Essentials
  • Rio Blue
  • ProSource
  • Rio Valley
  • Sysco Imperial
  • MVP

Additional descriptors used for these recalled onion types may include, but are not limited to, jumbo, colossal, medium, summer, and sweet onions.
