Goodbye sister disco; epidemiology doesn’t count and Subway sorta sucks at identifying suppliers; 79 sick with Salmonella; produce prime suspect

The Illinois Department of Health came out today and said there were now 79 confirmed cases of Salmonella serotype Hvittingfoss from eating at Subway restaurants located in 26 Illinois counties.

And while Subway has yanked some of its produce items like lettuce and tomatoes from these stores, no one will apparently point the finger.

Oh epidemiology, I’ll still dance with you.
