CARSON CITY, Nev. -- A 77-year-old Dayton woman is recovering after being hospitalized for salmonella poisoning from pepper.
Shirley Shultz's infection coincides with recalls of white and black pepper by California-based companies Union International Food Co. and CJ United Corp. over the last month.
Shultz was discharged Tuesday from a Carson City hospital after spending over a week there.
The Nevada Health Division says Shultz is among nine Nevadans infected with salmonella from pepper this year, but she's the only one who had to be hospitalized.
