Mich. health officials confirm salmonella outbreak

Health officials in Muskegon County confirm 29 cases of salmonella


MUSKEGON, Mich. — Health officials in Muskegon County have confirmed 29 cases of salmonella among Muskegon and Ottawa county residents.

Public Health - Muskegon County director Ken Kraus said Tuesday the agency conducted more than 100 interviews with food-service workers, restaurant patrons and others.

The investigation found the more than two-dozen people were exposed to salmonella bacteria after consuming lettuce or chicken at Pints & Quarts and C.F. Prime Chophouse. They were exposed between Oct. 30 and Nov. 2.

According to Kraus, the agency hasn’t been able to identify a procedure or practice that would have led to the contamination that occurred.

He says it “appears to be an isolated incident.”

Harris Hospitality restaurants owner Andy Harris says management has cooperated fully with the public health department.
