Texas Salmonella Outbreak Expands to 42 Cases

greensalmonella_406x250Another 12 people in Texas have fallen ill with Salmonella in an outbreak first linked to a steakhouse in Dalhart, TX, called Ten in Texas, according to local news station KFDA.

The 12 new cases do not appear to be connected to the steakhouse, which was said to be the source of the first 30 reported illnesses. Those 30 cases were first reported last week.

Texas health officials are still working to determine the exact source of the outbreak.

Ten in Texas voluntarily closed for a week to undergo cleaning and sanitization.

At least 10 of the new cases were found more than 50 miles south of Dalhart. In the community of Bushland, four students were found with Salmonella, while another six people in Amarillo were sickened.

It is not clear how the illnesses in Bushland and Amarillo are connected to the Dalhart restaurant.

    Seems to be a lot of artistic licence being displayed in this article seeing as there is no direct link to the original outbreak. I wouldn’t be too happy if I was the owner of the restaurant and was being indirectly associated with more cases!!!
