Up to 70 potential cases of salmonella have been linked to CityCenter hotspot Fig & Olive.

The Washington Post reports six of these have been confirmed as salmonella. The D.C. Health Department has been collecting samples to try to get at the root of the issue.

Fig & Olive has been closed since Monday. They issued this statement:

"We are continuing to make progress on testing and re-testing our products and procedures and sanitizing our facility from top to bottom. We are working with both the Department of Health and with the third-party food safety company we retained. It is premature to discuss any findings at this time but we are working hard to re-open soon."
