According to WISN 12 News, the Salmonella outbreak in Kenosha, Wisconsin may be associated with meat from a local grocery store called Los Corrales. At least 20 people have been sickened in this outbreak so far.
All of the patients said they ate meat products from that store and then got sick. Officials are investigating this outbreak, interviewing patients, and conducting inspections and collecting samples.
The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and nausea. Most people get sick within eight to seventy-two hours of exposure, and most recover within a week. But some people get so sick they must be hospitalized. There is no word on whether any of the patients in this outbreak have been hospitalized.
If you have experienced these symptoms, see your doctor. Salmonella infection is a reportable illness, and the doctor will tell the local health department if your tests are positive.
