12 kids sick, 3 in hospital in apparent Ottawa salmonella outbreak

Three children have been hospitalized and another nine have lab-confirmed salmonellosis in the past three days in Ottawa (that’s in Canada; capital, eh?).

Ottawa Public Health will continue monitoring the outbreak, with the goal of trying to identify if there is a common source for the infections.

Local doctors have been advised of the outbreak and asked to be on the watch for new salmonella infections.
