Northwest Arkansas Salmonella Cases Allegedly Tied to Sushi Restaurant

In northwest Arkansas, a possible Salmonella outbreak may be linked to a Japanese restaurant. Eighty-nine people have reported the illness, and the Division of Health says an investigation into the cases has shown many may be linked to Sushi King restaurant in Bentonville.

The restaurant has since volunteered to close temporarily. Health officials say they expect Sushi King to re-open once it improves food handling practices.
