Back on July 1, the Centers for Disease Control alerted the USDA's Food and Safety Inspection Service to a growing number of salmonella cases across the United States. At that time, 18 people had become sick across four states with the food-borne illness and the agency feared more were soon to follow. After pegging Foster Farms as the possible link between the cases, the FSIS began site sampling at facilities on September 9. But determining the source of the contamination would take time.
