Holiday Inn Bordeaux - Fayetteville, NC Salmonella Outbreak

The Cumberland County Health Department and North Carolina Division of Public Health began investigating a Salmonella outbreak among customers of the Holiday Inn Bordeaux restaurants after multiple restaurant patrons reported symptoms of Salmonella infection in mid-May 2013. By June 6, at least 103 people had reported becoming ill with Salmonella infections after eating at the Holiday Inn. Six hospitalizations are among those counted among the Salmonella outbreak victims, who ate at either the All American Sports Bar and Grill of the Cafe Bordeaux or hotel banquet kitchen.

The health department worked with the hotel and Salmonella outbreak victims to determine the food that caused the Salmonella outbreak and encouraged anyone who experienced symptoms of Salmonella infection including diarrhea, stomach cramps and fever after eating at the restaurant on May 1, 2013 to report their illness.

Salmonellosis (commonly called “Salmonella infection”) is an infection caused by bacteria called Salmonella. It is transmitted by contaminated food, water, or contact with an infected animal or person. It is commonly transmitted via the fecal-oral route, from one infected person to another. Symptoms may be mild and a person can continue to carry Salmonella for weeks after symptoms have subsided.

Most persons infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea (sometimes bloody), fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection.
