Outbreak clues sought

Oneida County health officials have yet to find the cause of a recent outbreak of food poisoning that left two people hospitalized.

Kenneth Fanelli, public information officer for the Oneida County Health Department, said the department is searching for a "commonality" in 10 cases of salmonellosis, which is caused by eating foods contaminated with the salmonella bacteria.

Officials are not overly concerned, but caution the public to properly cook and prepare foods, he said.
