Salmonella illnesses linked to Rattlesnake Cake at The Fort Restaurant in Morrison, CO.


An outbreak of Salmonella in Morrison, Colorado has been linked to The Fort restaurant there. At least 28 patrons of the restaurant have been sickened, many after consuming rattlesnake cake, a crab-cake like dish made with rattlesnake meat. The outbreak has been tied to the nationwide recall of eggs produced by Wright County Egg and Hillandale Farms contaminated with Salmonella.

Symptoms of Salmonella include vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, and fatigue. Anyone who dined at The Fort between July 10 and July 16 and is experiencing these symptoms should definitely seek medical attention and contact the health department, even if they did not consume rattlesnake cakes.
