The Washington State Department of Health (WSDH) has updated its assessment of a large Salmonella Pork Outbreak, identifying 61 victims across King, Snohomish, Mason, Thurston, Pierce, Grays Harbor, Yakima, and Clark counties. The majority of the Salmonella Pork Outbreak victims are residents of King County, the county where Seattle is located, but the victims come from all over the state. The common element in this outbreak appears to be whole roasted pork that has been served at a number of private events across the state – so far, the WSDH is not naming the pork vendor implicated in the Salmonella Pork Outbreak, but has stated that all of the victims were sickened by the same strain of Salmonella. WSDH is warning potential victims to make sure they do not eat any pork that is not heated to an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
