Source of Salmonella Outbreak
On May 28 and 29, several people became sick after attending either a prom or a graduation party in Santa Clara County, according to Joy Alexiou, a spokeswoman for the Santa Clara County Public Health Department. Tests on some of the victims, including a catering worker who nibbled on the food, determined that the culprit was salmonella, she said.
Throughout June and early July, county officials noted more clusters of two or more salmonella cases. In all, 42 people in Santa Clara County tested positive for salmonella, including six who ended up in the hospital, Alexiou said.
Similar clusters were popping up all over California, including four in San Diego County — one traced to a Korean restaurant — and another incident involving food served on a movie set in Los Angeles, an incident under investigation by Los Angeles County.
California is just one of 23 states that received eggs potentially contaminated by salmonella from Wright County Egg or Hillandale Farms of Iowa, the distributors at the center of the recall of more than half a billion eggs.
