Denny’s Link to Salmonella Illnesses in Minnesota

Screen Shot 2012-07-14 at 8.31.40 AM.pngAccording to Jill Jensen of the Post-Bulletin in Rochester Minnesota, the first Salmonella outbreak in years is linked to Denny’s Restaurant in Rochester.  Three confirmed cases and one suspected case of Salmonella montevideo are being investigated by Olmsted County Public Health Services and the Minnesota Department of Health.  As of Friday, they had not found a specific food source. They are investigating the possibility that a Denny’s Restaurant patron or employee brought in the food-borne illness.  The confirmed cases all dined at Denny’s Restaurant between June 27 and July 5 and were hospitalized for Salmonella montevideo, which began between July 2 and 7.
