No “Peanut” Scare In Tuolumne County

Sonora, CA — While over 500 people in 43 states have been infected with a strain of salmonella poisoning from peanut products, there has not been a single case listed in Tuolumne County.

According to County Health Officer Dr. Todd Stolp, some peanut products have been used in California schools but no Tuolumne County schools have apparently received any of those products.

The infected peanut products were produced by a Georgia firm.

Salmonella bacteria can cause stomach pain, diarrhea, fever and particularly in young and elderly people it may cause a spotty red rash with severe illness.
