People in South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, and many other states have been sickened by tainted onions. Check your pantry, fridge, and freezer for these onions.

The CDC is saying if you don't know where your onions came from, throw them out. Due to a salmonella outbreak in 37 states that has sickened over 600 people and caused the hospitalization of 129 people in the U.S.

You are asked to check cupboards and coolers for these onions. And if you can’t tell where they are from, throw them away.

The Center For Disease Control is saying do not buy or eat any whole fresh red, white, or yellow onions if they were imported from Chihuahua, Mexico, and distributed by ProSource Inc.

Throw away any whole red, white, or yellow onions you have at home that do not have a sticker or packaging. These onions may have stickers or packaging indicating the brand ProSource Inc. and the country Mexico where they were grown.

If you can’t tell where the onions are from, don’t buy or eat them. Wash surfaces and containers these onions may have touched using hot soapy water or a dishwasher.

Some people, especially children younger than 5 years, adults 65 years and older, and people with weakened immune systems may experience more severe illnesses that require medical treatment or hospitalization.

Life on a Cattle Ranch in Western South Dakota

Life is different out in the country. One look at the photo from Robin Bickel and you quickly realize that a workday is quite different as well, after all, she lives out west in South Dakota Cattle Country.

Robin Bickel took time to tell KIKN Country a little bit about her life out west and life as a woman, working outdoors with animals and nature in God's Country. Bickel lives and works on a cattle ranch operated by herself, her father, Jack, and his brother Keith. How far out in the country is she? How does 50 miles west of Mobridge, South Dakota sound? Yep, mountain time out there.

Life is so different in Sioux Falls, South Dakota compared to what our friends on the farm and ranches deal with. It's a half-mile to the grocery store for our family. For Robin, it's 17 miles. However, it's a quick step out her door and she's right in the middle of where a lot of the groceries come from.
