Associated Press Published 1:55 PM EST Dec 3, 2018 KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Health officials say a Cracker Barrel restaurant in southwestern Michigan will not reopen after a problem with salmonella. The Kalamazoo County health department says it was told about the closing last week. The agency says private tests revealed significant contamination at the Kalamazoo-area restaurant. Results from state tests are expected this week. The restaurant had reopened after closing in June due to health-code violations. Cracker Barrel, which is based in Lebanon, Tennessee, says the salmonella was not related to the food supply. But the chain says the restaurant has closed because it wasn’t confident that it could “prevent a reoccurrence.” More on freep.com: Heart transplant patient told to fundraise gets $30,000 Neglected dog rescues bullied Waterford boy, now bond is unbreakable Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause fever, diarrhea and stomach pain. Jim Rutherford, a Kalamazoo County health officer, says Cracker Barrel has been “responsive and cooperative” during the investigation. Food will be thrown out, and equipment won’t be used elsewhere until cleaned and tested.
