A new salmonella case in McLean County brings the Illinois count of a nationwide outbreak of Salmonellosis up to nine — six in Chicago, two in Will County and one in suburban Cook County.
The outbreak was first confirmed April 4, 2012 when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported 93 people were stricken.
Many of the sick reported eating sushi, sashimi or similar foods in the week before symptoms began, according to the CDC.
So far no source has not been identified, so no avoidance instructions exist. Sushi is suspected.
The incidence of illness is known as Salmonellosis, which includes diarrhea, fever, vomiting, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after salmonella infection. Usually the illness lasts four to seven days, and most people recover without treatment.
The April 2012 outbreak of salmonellosis is caused by a rarer subspecies of Salmonella (Salmonella Bareilly), and was reported mostly in eastern states. No deaths have been reported, but many episodes of sickness and some hospitalizations have resulted from the illness.CLEAR SKIES?  Weather Data for Wednesday, April 11th, 2012
