The South Dakota Department of Health, The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and three other states are currently investigating a Salmonella Newport outbreak.
According to state epidemiologist, Lon Kightlinger a total of 11 cases involving nine adults and two children have been reported in the Black Hills area of South Dakota. Six of the individuals were hospitalized, and no new cases have been reported since December 17, 2007.
Earlier this month it was reported that individuals in the states of Montana, Texas, and Pennsylvania had become ill from the same strain of Salmonella, and that state health departments along with the CDC were conducting interviews with outbreak victims to identify the food item that served as the source of the Salmonella infection.
