ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Three confirmed cases and one suspected case of salmonella montevideo have been reported in Olmsted County.
The sickness has been linked to Denny's restaurant in Rochester, according to Olmsted County Public Health Services. All three were hospitalized for their illnesses and dined at the Denny's between June 27 and July 5.
"Right now we don't have a food source that's been identified and so therefore it's more likely that it was an employee who was ill," said Shaylene Baumbach, a public health educator with Olmsted County.
Denny's has been cooperating with the investigation by Olmsted County Public Health Services and the Minnesota Department of Health.
Health officials ask that people contact their health care providers if they are experiencing symptoms of salmonella infection. Symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal pain, cramps and fever. They usually begin within 12 to 72 hours after exposure, but can begin up to a week later.
