My experience with Hawaii is pretty close to zero. I stopped there for a layover on a trip to Australia (for about an hour); I watched Magnum PI reruns when I was a kid; The Descendants is in my top 10 favorite all-time movies.
According to JoNel Aleccia of the Seattle Times, the Good Vibe Tribe Luau (which sounds awesome) is the source of Salmonella outbreak.
Illnesses were reported on July 11 and 12, with two reports on July 15.
Investigators are trying to determine what may have caused the illnesses at the event, where food included rotisserie roasted pig, barbecued beef, black beans and rice, tropical fruit salad, pineapple coleslaw, Hawaiian sweet bread and corn on the cob.
The event was catered by Mojito of Seattle. Inspectors visited the catering facility on July 13. No foods or processes have been linked to the illnesses so far.
