Wisconsin salmonella outbreak infects at least 8

Health officials are looking into a salmonella outbreak that has infected at least eight people, but they feel has ended. Test results are pending in a possible case from Walworth County.

The victims’ ages range from 17 to 54.

Officials say none of the victims became seriously ill, but one required hospitalization.

Mark Wegner, chief of communicable diseases for the state Department of Health and Family Services, says the strain involved is known as salmonella java. It’s typically associated with meat sources.
