Hacienda Don Villo, a restaurant in Channahon, Illinois, may be the source of an outbreak of Salmonella poisoning in Grundy County.

Hacienda don Villo Salmonella OutbreakIt is not yet known what food item served at the restaurant was contaminated with Salmonella bacteria.  Osterholm said in some outbreaks linked to restaurants, it’s not possible to identify the precise food product responsible for the illnesses.  If the contaminated product was produce, there is often none left to test by the time illnesses are reported to the health department. Also, if a person who was sickened had, for example, tacos, the adulterated product that caused illness could have been the lettuce, tomatoes, meat or an ingredient in the salsa. Even if health officials can’t say for sure which product was responsible, outbreak victims may still have good cases against the restaurant.

Symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning can include nausea, vomiting, severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, chills, headache, muscle pain and blood in the stool. This is a dangerous pathogen that is sometimes fatal.
