E. coli O157:H7 outbreak linked to Wendy’s salads in New Brunswick

The Daily Gleaner reports this morning that four people have been stricken with E. coli O157:H7 after eating salad at a Wendy’s restaurant in Fredericton, New Brunswick (that’s in Canada).

The cases of E. coli O157:H7 are believed to be linked to salads prepared and served at the Prospect Street restaurant. There’s no evidence to suggest a public health concern at other restaurant locations. Public Health Services is continuing its investigation into the matter.
