Previous reports noted that up to nine suspected cases are also being investigated.

Assistant State Health Officer Dr. Karen Landers recommended that people reduce their risk of Salmonella by avoiding raw or undercooked eggs, poultry or other meats, thoroughly washing produce, and following safe food handling practices during food preparation. Hand washing, keeping uncooked food away from cooked food, and using clean plates and utensils are some important ways to minimize food contamination. People should also wash their hands after contact with animals and animal feces.

The investigation is ongoing and final test results will be available at a later date. For more infectious disease news and information, visit and “like” the Infectious Disease News Facebook page
