FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -

A salmonella outbreak stemming from a Fayetteville hotel has now reached 70 possible cases, 12 of which are out of state.

The Cumberland County Department of Public Health says 70 people have reported signs or symptoms consistent with salmonella infections. Five people have been hospitalized.

All seem to have eaten at the All American Sports Bar and Grill and The Café Bordeaux within the Holiday Inn Fayetteville - Bordeaux on Owen Drive.

The hotel's General Manager Scooter Deal said the first 14 reported cases were all staff members at the hotel, including himself.

Deal said the health department investigators have asked questions of the restaurant kitchen staff and reviewed how they handled food. They are also checking what foods were shipped to the hotel.

Rick Suehr said he believes he was one of the people infected with salmonella. He ate Sunday brunch at the hotel on May 5. The following Saturday he began to feel sick, a feeling that lasted through Wednesday.

"I would rather you run me over in the parking lot with your Jeep than to have vomiting," Suehr said.

Health officials are worried that the outbreak could spread nationwide because the hotel is alongside Interstate 95.

The health department and the North Carolina Division of Public Health continue to ask individuals who consumed food or beverages at the Holiday Inn Fayetteville - Bordeaux since May 1 and then developed symptoms within three days of that visit to call the county Health Department at (910) 433-3638.

Symptoms consistent with salmonella infections are nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
