Nine people in the Southeast Michigan area have been sickened by salmonella poisoning linked to two Michigan retail stores, Gab Halal Foods and Jouni Meats Inc., as well as one identified Macomb County restaurant.
Salmonella food poisoning occurs when the small intestine becomes infected with bacteria that contaminates unsanitary food and water. Some of the most common salmonella food poisoning symptoms include cramps or abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, and muscle pains.
According to the Michigan Department of Community Health, six out of the nine individuals sickened are in hospitalization as a result of the salmonella contamination. In addition, there has been a count of another eight food illness infections nationally.
Gab Halal Foods, located in Troy, Michigan, and Jouni Meats Inc., located in Sterling Heights, Michigan have both recalled over 500 pounds of meat and ground beef products as a precaution for Salmonella Typhimurium contamination.
Gab Halal Foods is recalling all ground beef wrapped in a clear plastic without a label sold between the dates of December 4th and December 10th.
Jouni Meats Inc. is recalling all beef in various size packages sold between the dates of December 4th and December 10th.
