Salmonella Outbreak

I had posted on my Facebook page about a bout of food poisoning I developed during my last trip to Atlanta the week of December 1. I found this in the news today:

Link here.

As of Wednesday, January 7, 2009, 388 persons infected with the outbreak strains of Salmonella Typhimurium have been reported from 42 states. Among the 372 persons with dates available, illnesses began between September 3 and December 29, 2008, with most illnesses beginning after October 1, 2008. Patients range in age from <1 to 103 years; 48% are female. Among persons with available information,18% were hospitalized.

Georgia is one of the states that is significantly affected. Oh well. At least I now know what it was.

Do you know if they were able to track the source? It sounds like it was the beef and that's scary as hell.

Yep. Another article I read said it was beef so that pretty much cinched it.
