Hamilton Public Health officials have discovered another 12 cases of salmonella illnesses after asking anyone who has eaten at Eat a Pita on Main Street East since Feb. 1 to call them.

Officials declared a salmonella outbreak connected to Eat a Pita after investigating four salmonella cases linked to the restaurant. Eat a Pita has been closed as a result of improper food handling. During a previously scheduled health inspection on Feb. 1, it was found that cooked chicken wasn’t being kept at a high enough temperature.

Salmonella can cause fever, chills, sudden headache, diarrhea, nausea, and in some cases, vomiting. Public health are again asking anyone who experienced these symptoms and ate food prepared at Eat a Pita since Feb. 1, to call them at 905-546-2063.
