May 5, 2008: Casa Fiesta In Norwalk May Be Linked To Salmonella Outbreak

Jennifer Grathwol, writing for the Sandusky Register Online, reports that 10 cases of Salmonella were reported in Norwalk, Ohio last week.

Although the exact source of the outbreak has yet to be determined, the common factor linking the 10 victims may have been eating at Casa Fiesta on April 24 or 25.  Casa Fiesta is located at 196 Milan Ave., Norwalk, Ohio.

The Ohio Department of Health is testing food samples from the restaurant.

Symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning may include diarrhea (sometimes bloody), abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, and joint pain. Symptoms usually appear within 12-72 hours after the ingestion of contaminated food.  The elderly, infants, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to suffer severe illness.
