Tri Tips Give Yuma Folks Salmonella

You have to admire a city like Yuma, AZ.   They do not waste food, especially when it comes to something like beef tri tip cuts.  It was served at the Hospice of Yuma roping roundup, barbecue and western dance at the Yuma County Fairgrounds. 

Then the left over tri tips were donated to the Crossroads Mission.

Then 92 people got sick from salmonella.  Many were treated at the Yuma Regional Medical Center. 

After getting back positive tests for salmonella, Yuma County health officials were urging anyone who still had any of the tri tips to throw them out.  The big Hospice event was Feb. 2nd.

There’s a story about the salmonella outbreak in today’s Yuma Sun.  It can be found online here.
