ST. PAUL, Minn. — State health officials say seven salmonella cases in Minnesota have been linked to a multistate egg recall. Missouri is one of the states affected.

The salmonella cases were identified in two restaurant outbreaks in May and in July. Health officials believe the eggs are the likely source.

The eggs from Wright County Egg of Galt, Iowa were delivered to food distribution centers and food service companies in eight states, including Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa.

Minnesota Public Radio reports that for every confirmed salmonella case, state health officials estimate there are 38 unconfirmed cases.
