According to Delaware health department officials, the cases in New Castle County were linked to the multistate outbreak through a standardized laboratory and data analysis method called whole genome sequencing (WGS).

Salmonellosis symptoms typically involve abdominal cramps, diarrhea, fever, nausea, chills, and muscular pains. Symptoms of salmonellosis normally dissipate by themselves 7 days but infants, the elderly, and people with weak immune systems should visit a medical health care provider a soon as they can as they are at a greater risk of more severe complications. According to Ron Simon, a national salmonella lawyer, people with salmonellosis usually recover completely, although it may take several months before their bowel habits are entirely normal. Recent studies have indicated that 25% of patients reported altered bowel habits six months after a bacterial gastroenteritis illness.
