Environmental evaluations were conducted by public health officials. Many locations in the kitchen were swabbed. The swab culture results were reported and included several that were positive for Salmonella bacteria.

William Hill, Nash County Health Director said in a statement, “The partnership between the local health department, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Agriculture and the restaurant owner has been invaluable during this investigation. The restaurant owner has been very cooperative, but based on these findings, it is imperative for the protection of the public that the restaurant be temporarily closed and identified violations must be corrected before the restaurant may reopen.”

Symptoms of a Salmonella food poisoning infection include a fever, nausea, vomiting, stomach and abdominal cramps, muscle aches, and diarrhea that may be bloody. Symptoms usually begin 12 to 72 hours after eating food contaminated with this pathogen. Salmonella London is a rare strain of this pathogen.
