KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — Kenosha County health officials say the number of salmonella cases has grown to 60.

The county Division of Health says it's still investigating the source of the outbreak, but is working with the Supermercado Los Corrales grocery store in Kenosha.

The Kenosha News (http://bit.ly/1PYzOx1 ) says one family reported eating pork carnitas from the store and then getting sick the next day. Health officials say the meat and food preparation area at the store has been closed.

Salmonella infection carries flu-like symptoms and can vary in severity, sending some to the hospital.
