Rochester, MN Salmonella outbreak traced to Quizno’s

KTTC News broke the story that a Rochester, Minnesota, Quizno’s restaurant has been identified as the source of a Salmonella outbreak.  According to the story:

Quizno's Salmonella OutbreakHealth officials say there have been ten confirmed cases of salmonella, and that all ten of the people affected did eat at Quiznos around the same time.

The Olmsted County Director of disease prevention and control told me that each person affected had eaten at the Quiznos just south of 37 street northwest during the first week of October.

He says the bacteria types have all been matched meaning it likely came from the same place.

Earlier this year, the source of a Salmonella outbreak that was traced to an Arby’s restaurant in Moses Lake, Washington, was determined to be a meat slicer.
