The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and Doniphan
County Health Department continue to investigate an outbreak
associated with an election day Indian taco dinner at the Highland
United Methodist Presbyterian Church in Highland, Kansas, on [Tue 7
Aug 2018]. A survey was launched on [Fri 10 Aug 2018] to collect
illness and exposure information from those that attended the dinner.

As of [Fri 31 Aug 2018], 115 persons have completed the survey, 69
have reported gastrointestinal illnesses, and 14 have tested positive
for _Salmonella [enterica_ serotype] Newport. These numbers are
preliminary.

Testing of food that was served at the dinner has been completed, and
all tested negative for _Salmonella_ except for a sample of tomatoes
that tested positive for the same strain of _Salmonella_ Newport.
Tomatoes were provided by multiple people, so an environmental
assessment of the sources of tomatoes is planned to potentially
determine how this contamination occurred.

In addition, KDHE is assessing whether other persons that did not
attend the taco dinner could have been sickened from consuming these
tomatoes.

[A taco usually contains a number of ingredients in addition to a
protein (beef, pork, chicken, or fish) including tomatoes and lettuce.
Any of these can be tainted with enteric pathogens. It appears that
the tomato is the "smoking gun" here. - Mod.LL
