CARMEL, Ind. - Despite reports of several customers complaining of being sickened from salmonella at the Agave Bar and Grill in Carmel, the restaurant's owner said there's no proof his establishment is contaminated.
Owner Alejandro Hernandez said the Hamilton County Health Department did not find any proof that salmonella was coming from Agave, although the restaurant was cited for having more than 40 violations during an inspection on July 1.
"The health department is investigating to find the root of the problem because obviously, this is not good for Agave," Hernandez said.
Via Twitter, the Current in Carmel originally reported that several Agave customers were sickened and sent to the hospital Wednesday.
One of the restaurant's violations included inadequate hot water for employees to wash their hands. Hernandez said that he was moving forward to install a second hot water heater and that he would notify the health department when the installation is complete.
