Almost 30 people sick after eating at Nebraska coffee shop
Another eight people who also ate at the cafe became sick with what authorities suspect is salmonellosis, according to the Elkhart Logan Valley Public Health Department. The department is seeking the public’s help to find the source of the bacteria.
“So far, all confirmed cases have one common factor, which is dining at Red Door Coffee in West Point,” according to an update posted by the local health department Thursday. “Red Door Coffee owners and staff are fully cooperating with the investigation.”
The outbreak update did not report dates of illness onset or whether any of the 28 sick people have required hospitalization. Investigators with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services are assisting local officials, but as of Thursday evening they were not suggesting any suspected root sources of the Salmonella bacteria.
