Outbreak of salmonella cases keeps rising

HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) - The Hopkins County Health Department confirms 10 cases of salmonella poisoning in the county.

That's up from 7 confirmed cases last week.

The family of 61-year-old Steve Davis, of Hanson, says he is the man who died last week from salmonella poisoning.

They also tell 14 News that other Davis family members are among the "confirmed cases" in the county.

Health officials say it could be weeks before a source is known, and officials might never find the source.
