30 sick: Arkansas restaurant possibly linked to Salmonella outbreak

Kristen Wilson of KATV reports the Arkansas Department of Health is investigating a foodborne illness outbreak that has affected approximately 30 people since Friday.

ADH has confirmed four cases of salmonella so far. At this point, health officials say their investigation suggests the Chuck Wagon Restaurant in Stuttgart is likely the site of the outbreak.

Currently, health officials are collecting biological specimens from those who fell ill and are investigating their recent food history and any other common exposures, including animal or worksite exposures.
