Muskegon County Salmonella Outbreak Traced to Restaurant Food


According to Muskegon County health officials, Salmonella outbreak victims ate at Pints and Quarts Pub and Grill or C.F. Prime Chophouse & Wine Bar, which share the same kitchen, between Oct. 30 and Nov. 2, 2013.

“We conducted over 100 interviews with food service workers, restaurant patrons, and others,” explained Ken Kraus, Director of Public Health Muskegon County. “We spoke with those who were ill as well as those who did not get sick to gather as much information as possible about what may have happened during this 4-day period.”

Symptoms of Salmonella Infection

Symptoms of Salmonella infection begin anywhere from 6 to 72 hours after a person ingests Salmonella bacteria and typically last 3 to 7 days, though in some cases Salmonella infection can last longer and is sometimes fatal. Symptoms include abdominal pain and cramping, diarrhea, and dehydration. In some cases they may include vomiting, headache, and body aches.

Reactive Arthritis

Reactive Arthritis occurs in 2 to 15 percent of Salmonella victims, and causes inflammation of the joints, eyes, urinary, or reproductive organs. Usually these symptoms ensue 18 days after the initial Salmonella infection with recovery time usually lasting from 2 to 12 months.
