Salmonella and Campylobacter at University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, August and September 2013

Channel 9 News reports that 25 people who ate meals on the University of Tennessee Chattanooga campus have complained of foodborne illness. A spokesperson for the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Health Department said that victims have reported illness symptoms such as fever, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. The health department reports that so far there are lab-confirmed cases of Salmonella and Campylobacter. They say that these results are "highly suggestive" that the problem is associated with a chicken product but that a specific source of the illnesses has not been identified. Inspections at the University's food establishments and review of their food handling practices were conducted. The unannounced inspections at the university revealed no specific problems or mishandling of food.
