At least 86 people fell ill after eating at one of two restaurants within the Holiday Inn Bordeaux in Fayetteville, N.C., as of Friday, according to Cumberland County Department of Public Health Director Buck Wilson. That number is up from 70 cases counted on Monday.

Seven of the patients have tested positive for Salmonella in laboratory cultures, Wilson told Food Safety News.

The hotel has two restaurants inside, the All American Sports Bar and Grill and the Café Bordeaux, both of which appear to be connected to the outbreak.

State and county health investigators are still working with the Holiday Inn to investigate the source of the outbreak. The county health department anticipates releasing a report on their findings shortly.
