Fern Hill Golf & Country Club Salmonella Outbreak

The Macomb County Health Department (MCHD) investigated a Salmonella outbreak among Macomb County residents in May of 2005.  All had attended after-concert receptions held at the Macomb County Community College Performing Arts Center in Clinton Township in the days before becoming ill. 

During its investigation, MCHD interviewed 70 people who had attended after-concert events; 23 reported symptoms consistent with Salmonellosis, and eight were laboratory-confirmed with Salmonella.  Further investigation revealed a statistically significant association between consumption of éclairs provided by one vendor, the Fern Hill Golf and Country Club, and illness.
