The DC Department of Health confirmed at least two cases of salmonella in the District, the Washington City Paper reports. No details – including the cause of the outbreak — are currently available, and no DC restaurants have been cited or closed in connection with these cases.

A total of eight people have been stricken with salmonella in Maryland, where health officials have reported that sushi is a leading suspect for transmitting the bacteria.

Now do you believe the rest stop California roll was a bad idea?
