August 27, 2007: Four Food Workers Also Victims of Arby’s Salmonella Outbreak in Grant County, Washington

According to an August 22 post on the Grant County Health District website, the investigation into the Salmonella Senftenberg outbreak there is ongoing. The county health department continues to focus on the Arby’s restaurant on Stratford Road in Moses Lake.

The website also notes that four Arby’s food workers are included in the 17 cases of food poisoning that have been identified. So far, direct links to Arby’s have been found in 11 of the cases.

Examination of the restaurant by health officials resulted in a positive test for the meat slicer. The slicer was the only piece of equipment to show evidence of Salmonella bacteria. In the Valdosta, Georgia, Arby’s food poisoning outbreak, the slicer was also implicated. Victims of the Georgia outbreak are represented by New Jersey attorney, Eric H. Weinberg, and Atlanta attorney, Andy Childers.
