177

A southeast Missouri county is investigating a salmonella outbreak that has sickened 34 people.

The Southeast Missourian reports that the cause hasn’t been determined. Perry County Health Department communicable disease coordinator Sheila Hahs says the agency began receiving worrying numbers of positive salmonella diagnoses from the Perry County Memorial Hospital on Aug. 7. The agency typically received just three to five confirmed salmonella cases each year.
District health authorities work with the US Department of Health and Human Services to investigate possible causes. The typical reason is contaminant foods.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention develops fever, cramps, or diarrhea within 12 to 72 hours of exposure to bactericides in the majority of people infected with salmonella.
