Are eggs the source of a Salmonella outbreak at The Grille restaurant at the Old Gold Dust West casino in Elko, NV?
The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services is investigating a Salmonella outbreak at The Grille restaurant at the Old Gold Dust West casino in Elko, Nevada that has sickened at least 17 people. Jacob’s Entertainment owns Gold Dust West and other casinos in Nevada, Colorado and Louisiana.
Health officials, who began gathering information on-site on March 11, asked that eggs be removed from the menu, John East, Jacob’s Entertainmentchief operating officer told local media. The restaurant complied with the request and has stopped serving eggs until results from health department tests are available. East also said the focus of the investigation seems to be on food suppliers to the restaurant.
Eggs and Salmonella
Eggs are a common source of Salmonella illnesses. They can be contaminated with Salmonella on the inside and outside of their shells. Proper cooking and handling can prevent illness.
Last year, a Salmonella outbreak linked to eggs produced by Rose Acre Farm sickened 45 people in 10 states. Some customers who ate Rose Acre Farm eggs at Milk & Honey restaurant in Nashville developed Salmonella infections and chose to file a lawsuit.
