3 sick with salmonella in kindergarten in Italy

Three cases of salmonellosis were found in three children attending the Parish Kindergarten in the Centrol per la Famiglia of Cassinone in Seriate, Italy. They belong to the spring group, consisting of children between 2- and 3-years-old.
A boy of two-and-a-half years began showing symptoms Friday and by Sunday, had to be hospitalized.
Lab testing prompted a salmonellosis diagnosis, as in the case of two other children from the kindergarten who have been hospitalized at the Pesenti Fenaroli hospital in Alzano.
The local health department has initiated an epidemiological study. As a precaution, the kindergarten has informed families with a letter.
Is a letter really a precaution?
