“Having more than 10 or 15 percent of your cases hospitalized tends to be a little bit more severe,” said Shoana Anderson, a Phoenix-based infectious disease epidemiologist.

Anderson said that the Salmonella-contaminated food probably is not linked with a restaurant since it is unlikely that all of the individuals who became ill visited the same restaurant. Instead, health officials are focusing on a chain store as the source of the food product.
