North Dakota health officials say preliminary tests show salmonella bacteria sickened more than 40 people at two private events last weekend.

A Health Department statement says at least nine people have been hospitalized, including two in intensive care, after attending either a weekend reunion in Wilton or a wedding in Washburn that was catered by an unlicensed caterer.

Health officials say at least 20 other people sought care at emergency rooms or clinics for such symptoms as nausea, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.

State Epidemiologist Kirby Kruger says preliminary tests indicate the illness was caused by salmonella bacteria.
