Salmonella strikes 22 at Ohio eatery

I’ve never heard of Athens, Ohio, although it is apparently home to a heavy metal band I’ve never heard of, the aptly named Skeletonwitch (right, exactly as shown).

An unnamed but popular eatery that I have also never heard of in Athens, Ohio, was apparently home to a Salmonella outbreak last week that sicken at least 22 people.

WBNS-10TV cited Athens County health officials as saying the restaurant poses no threat to public health and that is has been inspected.

Health department spokesman Charles Hammer said the restaurant was immediately inspected, adding,

"Everything is currently in order. If we were to find a food service operation with an ongoing threat to the public health we would close that operation. this is not the case here."
