Food source identified in Toyo Tire salmonella outbreak

Preliminary laboratory findings released Wednesday by the Georgia Department of Public Health have identified the food source responsible for the salmonella outbreak at last month’s catered Thanksgiving meal for Toyo Tire employees.

According to Georgia Department of Public Health spokesperson Logan Boss, preliminary findings implicate catered turkeys served by Angelo's New York Style Pizza & Bistro.

Boss added the laboratory investigation is ongoing.

Five people were hospitalized and more than 70 were treated at area medical facilities in connection with the salmonella outbreak at the catered meal on Nov. 14-15.

Angelo’s New York Style Pizza & Bistro reopened last week after the restaurant was reinspected and received a perfect score.
