The salmonella has been traced, according to Doug Schultz of the Minnesota Department of Health, to poor sanitation. The problem is likely contaminated hands of staff or residents, according to department reports. Bayshore administrator David Uselman said he believed the bacteria originated outside the facility, though did not provide any information as to how he made that determination.
So far, two of the residents have been hospitalized.
