Product Recall Because of Possible Health Risk

Satur Farms, 3705 Alvah's Lane, Cutchogue, NY 11935 is voluntarily recalling Baby Spinach and Mesclun with the specific lot numbers listed below because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Recurrent severe bacterial and fungal infections are characteristic features of the rare genetic immunodeficiency disorder chronic granulomatous disease (CGD). The disease usually manifests within the first years of life with an incidence of 1 in approximately 200,000 live births. The incidence is higher in Iran and Morocco where it reaches 1.5 per 100,000 live births. Mutations have been described in the 5 subunits of NADPH oxidase, mostly in gp91phox and p47phox, with fewer mutations reported in p67phox, p22phox, and p40phox. These mutations cause loss of superoxide production in phagocytic cells.CYBB, the gene encoding ...

We present the clinical case of a patient who presented to our emergency room with a chief complaint of left shoulder and left upper quadrant abdominal pain. Abdominal imaging showed an intrasplenic collection suspicious for a hemorrhage or an abscess. Percutaneous drainage was successfully performed, followed by conservative management with intravenous antibiotics. The culture of the fluid drained from the spleen was positive for Salmonella Saintpaul. The patient improved and was discharged. A high degree of clinical suspicion is necessary for early identification of a splenic abscess. Splenectomy can be avoided with the ...

We report the first case demonstrating an association between Kawasaki disease (KD) and erythema nodosum (EN). A 3-year-old girl presented with EN as an initial manifestation of KD. At the initial visit, she showed high fever of 40°C, injection of the oropharynx, cervical lymphadenopathy, and red-purple cutaneous nodules, particularly on the lower limbs. She complained of severe pain in the neck and cutaneous lesions. Initially, the development of EN was attributed to Salmonella spp infection, which was detected in stool culture. However, the patient did not respond to high-dose ampicillin/sulbactam to which the Salmon...

However, extra-intestinal infections are known to occur, with purulent pericarditis associated with cardiac tamponade being rare. This case report is of a 57-year-old male with Crohn’s disease initiated on infliximab therapy two months prior to present...

This study aimed to correlate Shigella/EIEC virulence-related genes (VRGs) with clinical symptoms, nutritional status and coenteropathogens in children from the Brazilian semiarid region. We designed a case-control study of community diarrhea in six cities of the Brazil semiarid region with 1200 children aging 2-36 months. Standardized questionnaire was applied for collecting sociodemographic, nutritional status and clinical information of the children. DNA samples were extracted from stools and diagnosed for Shigella/EIEC using PCR-based approaches. Positive samples were tested for 28 VRGs using four multiplex PCRs. Intes...

Abstract An eleven-year-old boy presented with fever and hip pain, with limited mobility of the right side of the hip. Computed tomography scan revealed an increased volume of the right coxo-femoral joint, requiring surgical drainage of purulent secretion, from which Salmonella enterica was isolated. After four weeks of treatment with third-generation cephalosporin, he was discharged with a favorable evolution. Invasive disease caused by Salmonella spp represents a small proportion of salmonellosis cases, although it is responsible for greater rates of hospitalization, morbidity and mortality. Children under 5 years, elder...
