The Moby Dick House of Kabob Salmonella outbreak sickened nine people in Virginia. All of those illnesses occurred in September among Virginia residents who dined at Moby Dick House of Kabob locations in that state. Additional cases were reported in Maryland and Washington, DC.
Salmonella infections occur when people eat food that has been contaminated with microscopic amounts of fecal matter containing the bacteria. This can happen if an infected food worker does not wash hands properly, or when produce or poultry is processed.
Symptoms of a Salmonella infection can develop within hours of exposure. The incubation period usually falls between six and 72 hours. Once they appear, symptoms, which include fever, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea that can be bloody, usually last about a week.
This outbreak also includes 23 cases in Maryland and at least one illness was reported in Washington, DC.
