THURMONT, Md. - The Frederick County Health Department is investigating a recent outbreak of Salmonella in the county.
People who were affected by Salmonella illnesses were connected back to a benefit pancake breakfast earlier in March in Thurmont.
Officials believe sausage from a Frederick County 4-H Country Butchering event back in late January is to blame for the outbreak.
Sausage that was bought by some guests was tested by the State Health Department Laboratory and did contain Salmonella.
Salmonella is especially dangerous for infants, the elderly, and people with HIV or in treatment for cancer.
The Health Department is recommending that anyone who still has sausage from the event should get rid of it.
Anyone with questions about the outbreak can call the Health Department at 301-600-2542.
