November 26, 2019

Health officials say a barbeque restaurant in North Carolina may have sickened about a dozen people with salmonella.

A press release from the Nash County Health Department says the operating permit for Doug Saul’s Bar-B-Que & Seafood in Nashville, N.C., was suspended. The statement says 14 cases of salmonella have been identified, and 10 people had visited the restaurant before they got sick.

The restaurant said in a Facebook post that this is its first incident in 42 years of business.

The health department swabbed multiple locations in the kitchen which returned several cultures positive for salmonella. The statement says salmonella is an organism that may cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
