The Cuyahoga County Board of Health has confirmed six cases of salmonella infection and is investigating four more suspected cases in which people were sickened, allegedly after dining at the popular Woodmere restaurant Corky & Lenny’s.
The first case was reported Monday, and no cases have been reported since Wednesday, McLeod said. Two people were hospitalized and have since been discharged.
The likely culprit is the restaurant’s matzo ball soup, which is made with eggs and chicken fat, although health officials are checking every item on the menu, as well as testing the restaurant staff, McLeod said.
McLeod and restaurant manager Earl Stein said Corky & Lenny’s is fully cooperating with the investigation. The restaurant remains open for business.
