Federal health officials are searching for the source of a Salmonella Thompson outbreak that has sickened 77 people, according to the latest information from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Details about the investigation have not been released so it’s not yet known if this is the multistate outbreak that may be linked to a Salmonella outbreak at La Mex restaurant in IL.
