A Salmonella outbreak at Moby Dick House of Kabob has sickened nine people in Virginia. Those illnesses occurred in September among Virginia residents who dined at Moby Dick House of Kabob locations in that state. Additional cases were reported among diners who ate at restaurant locations in Maryland and Washington, DC.
Salmonella outbreaks occur when people eat food that has been contaminated with microscopic amounts of fecal matter containing the bacteria. Sometimes this happens when an infected food worker does not wash hands properly after going to the bathroom. Other times food gets contaminated while it is being processed.
Symptoms of a Salmonella infection can develop within hours of eating the contaminated food. The incubation period is usually six to 72 hours. Symptoms, which include fever, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea that can be bloody, usually last about a week.
This outbreak also includes 23 illnesses in Maryland and at least one case in Washington, DC.
