Many counties of the Illinois State have been struck with Salmonella sickness that reportedly originated from the international sandwich company Subway. The sickness has reported to affect more than 30 people from which about 15 were hospitalized. The sickness is as such not a huge reason to worry, although it could cause hindrance in daily activities of people.

Subway has agreed to cooperate in the investigation with health ministry to find the source of the spread of sickness. As a precaution Subway removed all their stock of lettuce, red onions, green peppers and tomatoes. These vegetables were suspected to be the carrier of the Salmonella bacteria. The removed stock was replaced with fresh vegetables. This was obviously a smart move by Subway to clear out their name and to prevent further sicknesses.

There were many worried calls from people from areas outside of Illinois who went to Subway lately. Those people were assured that investigation is on way. By this time there has been no news about the cause of the bacteria. People who were affected by the sickness are encouraged to visit doctors, but as yet there is no treatment or cure for Salmonella, it can only be waited out till it goes away. The only thing that could help in a speedy recovery is taking a lot of fluids so that dehydration could be avoided.

Symptoms of Salmonella include headaches, feeling of tiredness, diarrhea (that may or may not be with blood), fever, vomiting and nausea. The Salmonella bacteria reproduce in the digestive tract.
