WARSAW -- Wyoming County had a salmonella case tied to the national outbreak related to peanut butter products, but health officials were not able to identify the source, the county's medical director said this morning.

Dr. Greg Collins said the case occurred in October, before the national outbreak developed. The state Health department was subsequently able to identify the bacterial strain as the same one associated with the national outbreak, he said.

The case was investigated, Collins said, but no source was found.

The person recovered, he said, and there have been no other problems or cases in the county since then.
