Salmonella outbreak after benefit pancake breakfast in Maryland

Although details are limited at this point, officials believe sausage from a Frederick County 4-H Country Butchering event back in late January is to blame for an outbreak of salmonella connected back to a benefit pancake breakfast earlier in March in Thurmont, MD.

Sausage that was bought by some guests was tested by the State Health Department Laboratory and did contain salmonella.

The Frederick County Health Department is recommending that anyone who still has sausage from the event should get rid of it.
