Salmonella outbreak hits Michigan

"Health officials say a salmonella outbreak potentially linked to produce has sickened at least 172 people in 18 states including Michigan.

Health officials think the bacteria may have spread through some form of produce. The list of suspects includes lettuce and tomatoes.

But the illnesses have not been tied to any specific product, chain, restaurants or supermarkets.

24 Hour News 8 checked with the Michigan Department of Community Health. They've found two adult cases linked to Mackinac County. There is no determination yet how the pair contracted the infection."
