If you live in Cole County, that case of the stomach flu might be something worse. The county health department says it’s found at least 25 cases of salmonella. County health employees are questioning those who have the food borne illness to see if they can identify the source. There are concerns that more than half of the individuals ate at the same restaurant.
Salmonella can produce nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. It’s usually not fatal and runs its course in a few days.
