We don’t know what type of Salmonella made people sick, and there is no information about how the illnesses may have been transmitted. We also do not know if anyone has been hospitalized because their illness is severe. The cause of the outbreak has not been determined. The restaurant is not closed and the company is cooperating with the investigation.

Salmonella outbreaks have been linked to everything from chicken to turkey to ground beef to leafy greens and eggs in the past.

Food safety lawyer Fred Pritzker, who has represented many people sickened with Salmonella infections after eating in restaurants, said, “This outbreak could have been caused by any type of food, by issues in the kitchen, or by someone who has been sick. No one should get sick just because they went to a restaurant to eat.”

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include fever, nausea, stomach and abdominal cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea that may be bloody. Typically, people get sick a few hours to a few days after they ingest food that is contaminated with this pathogen. Most people recover without any medical care, but people who are elderly or who have compromised immune systems or chronic illnesses can become much more sick.

If you ate at that restaurant and have been ill with the symptoms described, see your doctor. Even if you recover from this infection without any  medical treatment, you can still develop long term complications such as reactive arthritis, endocarditis, and irritable bowel syndrome. This illness should be noted on your medical chart.
