The Health Department said Monday that 33 cases of suspected salmonella have been reported, and 17 people have been hospitalized with the illness. The pastry shells had been stored in used egg crates, which could have exposed them to raw eggs.
Beginning Tuesday, anyone with questions about the outbreak can call 401-222-8022 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to speak with health department staff members.
