Chesterton restaurant reopens after salmonella outbreak

NWI Times reports that Lakeshore Cafe opened at 6 a.m. Tuesday for the first time since a salmonella outbreak forced owners to close the doors last week.

Restaurant owners and employees sanitized the restaurant Monday and then took a handwashing and food safety course. County health officials were there when the Chesterton restaurant reopened.
 
Health Department Administrator Keith Letta said four more restaurant patrons had been confirmed as salmonella cases, bringing the total to 16 cases.
 
Four infected employees, one of whom no longer works at the restaurant, spread the bacterium through the food.
