A Salmonella outbreak has occurred in Texas. At least 64 people have been infected with Salmonella, and a majority of these cases originated from the X10 in Texas restaurant. X10 in Texas is a family owned restaurant in Dalhart, TX. Both customers and employees tested positive for Salmonella in the early months of 2015. The restaurant voluntarily closed for a week in order to undergo a thorough sterilization and cleaning. X10 in Texas reopened on February 18, 2015. Officials have not yet identified the source of the outbreak.
Salmonella infection can present with symptoms such as fever, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and nausea. Symptoms appear within 72 hours of infection, and these symptoms may last up to 7 days. In many cases, someone who is infected with Salmonella will recover without treatment. However, the illness may become more severe and require medical attention.
