Maryland Department of Health Investigating Salmonella Outbreak

Nine confirmed cases have been reported.

Baltimore, MD – The Maryland Department of Health is investigating reports of nine cases of salmonella in Maryland.

The exact cause has not been determined, but eight of the cases reported consuming hummus from the Moby Dick House of Kabob which has multiple locations in Maryland, Virginia, and D.C.

The restaurant has since voluntarily suspended their sale of the hummus and MDH recommends that consumers should discard any hummus they have purchased from Moby Dick House of Kabob.

Symptoms of salmonella induce diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps that could manifest within six hours of infection and last up to seven days.

The investigation is ongoing.
