SHELBY, N.C. -- The number of reported salmonella cases following a Shelby barbeque has jumped higher than 100.

Health officials say 103 people have reported sickness following the fundraiser almost two weeks ago. No one is currently hospitalized.

Six cases have been confirmed in Rutherford County and 13 have been confirmed in Cleveland County.

Anyone who believes they may have salmonella poisoning should see a doctor.

Foods most likely to contain salmonella include raw or under-cooked eggs, raw milk, contaminated water and raw or under-cooked meats.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says salmonella is the second most common intestinal infection in the United States.
