Salmonella Cases Linked to West Lafayette Grocery Store Spark Investigations in Tippecanoe County
A cluster of Salmonella cases has been linked to La Aldea Grocery, located at 2801 Klondike Road in Tippecanoe County, Indiana. Consumers who experienced symptoms after consuming food or beverages from La Aldea between September 7 and September 17, 2020 may have been exposed to salmonella bacteria.
Symptoms of Salmonella commonly include diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Tippecanoe County Health Department is currently investigating the La Aldea-related outbreak and is requesting pertinent information to aid health officials with their work. If you may have been affected, you are advised to report your symptoms to the Tippecanoe County Health Department at 765-423-9222 ext. 1.
In addition to the investigation at La Aldea, Americans have encountered several other Salmonella outbreaks this year: The CDC recently reported a Salmonella outbreak across 12 states that was caused by contaminated peaches. In addition, onions contaminated with Salmonella have been the source of outbreaks in the United States and Canada. Salmonella can contaminate a wide range of foods, such as ground beef, produce, chicken, and dairy products, so simply keeping up to date with Salmonella outbreaks can go a long way. Practicing proper hand hygiene, especially around animals and household pets, may also help prevent Salmonella.
