KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — Health officials are working with a Kenosha grocery store to find out how a salmonella outbreak started and sickened nearly two dozen people.

The Kenosha County Division of Health is investigating food purchased over the Mother's Day weekend at Supermercado Los Corrales. The grocery store's meat and food preparation area is closed.

The Kenosha News (http://bit.ly/1ef3ZUN ) says a 35-year-old Kenosha woman and her 8-year-old daughter were recently released from the hospital after they became ill. County health clinical services director Gwynn Perry-Brye says the flu-like symptoms can vary in severity. The illness usually lasts four to seven days.

Salmonella is usually transmitted to people by eating foods contaminated with the bacteria.
