Salmonella sucks. In complex full service restaurants there are lots of possibilities for contamination. Sometimes the source is improper cooking procedures. Sometimes illnesses are linked to asymptomatic food handlers. Often the actual source is never identified.
According to myhighplains.com, 30 patrons of a Dalhart, TX restaurant, X-10 Woodfire Steakhouse have salmonellosis. That’s about all the info that’s out there.
The Texas Department of State Health Services tells KAMR Local 4 News the X-10 Woodfire Steakhouse in Dalhart has been connected to the salmonella cases.
Last week, that restaurant voluntarily closed.
Officials say since then, the restaurant was cleaned and sanitized and has been cleared for reopening.
Officials say they have not identified the original source inside the restaurant.
All environmental and food samples tested negative for salmonella.
