St. Vincent Health Care facilities in Billing, MT linked to a foodborne illness outbreak

4 months ago

Billings, Montana, United States

RiverStone Health is investigating a foodborne illness outbreak in Billings, Montana, after 80 St. Vincent Healthcare employees fell ill on Friday, May 12, 2023. The source of the contamination has yet to be identified, but it is possible the contaminated food was delivered to various St. Vincent Health Care facilities on Wednesday as part of National Nurses Day celebrations.

Most of the symptoms reported thus far include vomiting and/or diarrhea. RiverStone Health has removed the suspected food from circulation and is working to identify the exact illness. An investigation form has been sent to all employees who have shown symptoms.

RiverStone Health is urging caution as the illness is fast-moving and could spread to others. St. Vincent Healthcare has not identified the external source of the food but did say they are partnering with RiverStone Health for the outbreak investigation.

RiverStone Health is warning the public to be vigilant and take necessary precautions to prevent any further spread of the illness.

In case you experienced vomiting, diarrhea, and nausea, report it now. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.

In detail, the patients exhibited symptoms consistent with food botulism.

It is believed these cases also trace back to the same Bordeaux source of contamination.

The matter came to light after substantial administrative action against Tchin Tchin Wine Bar. All of the restaurant's canned goods have been seized, revealing issues with control in the canned manufacturing process. An analysis of all seized goods is expected by the upcoming Friday. To date, the food symptoms blame the sardines, which were served as is, like tapas.

"Despite the prompt response, it is estimated that around ten additional cases are possible due to the quantity of potentially contaminated product served by the restaurant," stated Thierry Touzet, deputy director of the departmental population protection directorate.

Victims of botulism potentially face long-term effects, especially if they suffer infectious complications. However, a botulinum antitoxin is available that can help shorten hospitalization time.
