The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS), in collaboration with the La Crosse County Health Department, investigated an outbreak of salmonellosis associated with consuming beef tartare served at Restore Public House in La Crosse between July 10 and July 12, 2019.

35 restaurant patrons were interviewed during the investigation. Seven confirmed and 10 probable (ill but not tested) cases were linked to this outbreak.

Restore Public House voluntarily removed the beef tartare dish from their menu once they were notified of the illnesses.

See the DHS salmonellosis fact sheet for more information on common symptoms of salmonellosis. If you have any symptoms of salmonellosis, please contact your doctor.

Consumption of raw or undercooked meat, poultry, or eggs can increase your risk of foodborne illness. See the DHS food safety webpage for more information on safe food practices.
