12 Octobre, 2019, 05:27 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

Federal health officials report investigating a Salmonella Oranienburg outbreak linked to contact with pet turtles.

No deaths have been reported to officials at this time according to WILX, however, seven people have been hospitalized because of it.

As part of their investigation into the outbreak, the CDC found that interaction with pet turtles appears to be the common factor between many of these cases - 12 of the 17 patients who were interviewed reported having had contact with a turtle before contracting the illness.

The CDC says illnesses started on dates ranging from May 29 to September 3. Ill people range in age from less than one year to 80 years, with a median age of 24.

The CDC states that people shouldn't "kiss or snuggle" with turtles, and they should wash their hands after touching the pets.

Salmonella infections can cause diarrhea, vomiting, fever and abdominal cramps. The illness usually lasts four to seven days, and most people recover without needing treatment, according to the CDC. However, in some cases, the illness may be so severe that a person requires hospitalization. The infection can spread to the intestines to the bloodstream and then other places in the body.

Beyond that, health experts are advising that families should consider getting a different pet if they have children under the age of 5 in the home, adults over the age of 65, or anyone who has a weak immune system.

Don't let turtles roam freely in areas where food is prepared or stored, such as kitchens.

Avoid cleaning these items in the kitchen or any other location where food is prepared, served, or stored.

Whole genome sequencing analysis did not identify antibiotic resistance in bacterial isolates from ill individuals. Individuals reported purchasing the turtles from pet stores or receiving them as a gift. People can become infected if they do not wash their hands after contact with animals carrying Salmonella, or their environments.

The reported illnesses are a result of Salmonella Oranienburg. "Previous Salmonella outbreaks have been linked to turtles with a shell length [of] less than 4 inches". They shed more salmonella bacteria than adult turtles, the CDC said, and children are more likely to think of them as toys and to put them into their mouths. "People should know that reptiles and amphibians carry Salmonella".
