DHEC discontinues salmonella phone line

The state Department of Health and Environmental Control announced it has discontinued a special line established for the investigation of last week’s salmonella outbreak at a Camden restaurant. People with concerns or questions about the case are asked to call DHEC’s Kershaw County Public Health Department.

The outbreak led to the largest food-borne illness investigation in recent state history. One death and 287 illnesses in two states, including 50 hospitalizations, have been linked to the outbreak.

DHEC has interviewed more than 500 people as part of its investigation of food served at the Old South Restaurant.
