Confirmed cases of Salmonella reported in Wichita County

Seven confirmed cases of Salmonella have been reported locally by the Wichita County Public Health Department, according to Lou Franklin, R.N., BSN.

Raw Roma tomatoes and full sized large tomatoes that are not attached to the vine or home-grown are believed to be the cause. Symptoms include headache, nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea. The symptoms persist for 4 to 7 days; those who are suffering symptoms should drink water, get plenty of rest, and contact a personal physician. Cook tomatoes at 145 degrees F. for at least 15 seconds to kill Salmonella. For more information, contact Rene Wood at 940.761.7697.
