Smiling Hara Tempeh Salmonella Paratyphi B cases rise from 46 to 60

BuncombeCountyLogo_000.jpgBuncombe County reports today that the number of Salmonella Paratyphi B cases has risen from 46 to 60. 

According the Health Officials, the rare type of Salmonella was traced to Asheville made Smiling Hara Tempeh, a fermented soy bean product. Smiling Hara Tempeh made in Candler was pulled from stores and restaurants in April.

That means the disease is now likely spreading person-to-person.
