New Hampshire, United States
The Manchester Health Department with the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services are investigating a cluster of Salmonella infections in Hillsborough County, possibly linked to Uba Noodle Bar located at 36 Lowell St in Manchester, NH.
According to the news, Dr. Benjamin Chan, New Hampshire... State Epidemiologist explained that a number of those affected have reported eating at this establishment, but no specific source within the restaurant has been identified at this point, and there may be other potential community exposures.
The Manchester Health Department has ordered the closing of Buba Noodle Bar on Lowell Street after discovering that cases of Salmonella have been associated with the restaurant as recently as May 15. On May 20, the restaurant's owners had already voluntarily shut down when the Health Department visited the establishment, and the owners have been cooperative with the Health Department in the investigation.
Buba Noodle Bar must remain closed until the facility undergoes a “deep cleaning and sanitation” of all surfaces by a professional company, all prepared foods are discarded, and all employees submit a stool sample for testing at the New Hampshire Public Health Laboratory. Employees may return to work in any food service role only following negative testing results.
In case you are experiencing Salmonella symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance.
