Hamilton Public Health are investigating a reported outbreak of Salmonella.


The Ole Gourmet restaurant in Stoney Creek is now closed after four people have been confirmed with salmonella after consuming food at the restaurant.

Initially, public health officials first closed the restaurant on May 17th after a report of salmonella.  Then, after an inspection on May 18th a re-inspection of the restaurant occurred and it appeared to be compliant with Ontario’s Food Premises regulation, and the restaurant was allowed to re-open.

Unfortunately, more cases of Salmonella were reported on May 22 and officials performed an additional inspection that included the collection of 10 food samples, three of which have been reported positive for contamination with Salmonella.

Anyone who may have eaten at the restaurant from May 4 th onward with symptoms of Salmonella are being urged to seek medical attention.

Symptoms include fever, chills, sudden headache, stomach cramps, diarrhea, nausea and sometimes vomiting.

Most people recover from Salmonella without any further issues.
