Further testing performed at the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene confirmed the Salmonella had the same DNA fingerprint as the patient isolates.
As of Wednesday, June 3rd, health officials have given Supermercado Los Corrales officials the green light to reopen the facility’s food preparation area, which had been closed during this investigation.
