California traces salmonella infections back to May prom

As public health officials across the country look into the salmonella outbreak that began in the spring, the state of California believes it has identified its earliest cases - and says its investigation may have tipped off the rest of the country about the looming problem.

Several people, including students, who attended a prom and graduation party on May 28 and 29 in Santa Clara County, became sick and some of them were hospitalized, Michael Sicilia, a spokesman for the California Department of Health, said Tuesday.
