The Columbus Telegram

In 2018, a total of five Salmonella cases have been reported in eastern Nebraska resulting in four individuals being hospitalized.

Two men and three women ages 50-80 have contracted the illness, said Leah Bucco-White, public information officer at Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the US Department of Agriculture, this multi-state outbreak was linked to contaminated chicken salads sold at Fareway grocery stores in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota. There are 170 reported cases nationally spanning across seven states but no deaths have been reported, information from the CDC says.
