February 13, 2006
WOODMERE, Ohio -- A popular Woodmere restaurant remains closed this week as the board of health investigates several probable cases of salmonella.
The Cuyahoga County Board of Health said that 12 confirmed cases and 41 probable cases of salmonella were reported between Jan. 29 and Feb. 10, and officials link the cases to Corky and Lenny's Restaurant.
The CCBH provided education and training on food protection to the restaurant staff Monday, and also submitted samples of restaurant food and food handlers' stool samples to the Ohio Board of Health for analysis.
The Board of Health says the restaurant's management continues to be cooperative in the investigation.
The restaurant closed voluntarily last Friday after the board of health began its investigation.
