Safety Report: Outbreak of Salmonella infections linked to pet geckos, Canada

Outbreak

Canada

Public Health Notice: An outbreak of Salmonella infections linked to geckos has been reported by the Public Health Agency of Canada. As of March 22, 2024 there are 35 confirmed cases of Salmonella Lome illness reported in this outbreak in the following provinces: British Columbia (2), Alberta (2), Saskatchewan (2), Manitoba (2), Ontario (18), Quebec (8) and New Brunswick (1).

Individuals became sick between March 2020 and January 2024. Five individuals have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported. Individuals who became ill are between 0 and 84 years of age. Seven cases (20%) are in children 5 years of age or younger. More than half of the cases (66%) are female. The investigation is ongoing, as recent illnesses continue to be reported.

The outbreak, which has been ongoing since March 2020, has been traced back to two types of geckos: the crested gecko and the leopard gecko. Many of those affected reported either direct or indirect contact with these pets or their habitats prior to falling ill. Some individuals fell sick despite not handling the geckos themselves, but lived in the same house where the pets were kept. The same strain of Salmonella was found in a gecko habitat from the home of an ill individual.

In case you are experiencing Salmonella symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.
