Walmart Spokesperson Brooke Buchanan released the following statement Thursday.
“Walmart is committed to protecting the health and safety of our associates. We recently became aware that several people fell ill after eating at Salsarita’s in the Home Office cafeteria, which is operated by Eurest. While the source of the reported illnesses has not been confirmed, out of an abundance of caution, Eurest has voluntarily suspended operations of the Mexican food bar. The Walmart Food Safety team is working in full cooperation with the Benton County Health Department and Eurest to determine the exact cause.”
Any employees experiencing gastrointestinal problems can call the Walmart Food Safety & Health Department at (479) 273-8054.
