New York City pharmacy closes after an investigation
New York, NY — The New York Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYDHMH) has announced that it has closed Eckerd Pharmacy in New York after receiving reports of a possible outbreak of salmonella.
The announcement comes as New York continues to experience its second outbreak of Salmonella, this time in Brooklyn.
The health department says the company was closed due to an elevated risk of exposure to salmonellosis, and it was not yet clear if the outbreak could be linked to the pharmacy.
In a statement, a spokesperson for NYDHMH said that the health department has been conducting an investigation into the pharmacy for two weeks and has “found no evidence of an outbreak at this time.”
The statement also says that there are no known contacts of the affected employees at the New York pharmacy.
Eckerds health department does not believe the company’s closures were related to the outbreak, but it is encouraging those with questions to contact the NYC DHMH.
Eberhart Pharmacy is one of the oldest and most well-known pharmacies in New Jersey.
It opened in 1919 and is still a fixture in the community, with its storefront in a busy area of Manhattan, a pharmacy that was once one of New Jersey’s most important employers.
Today, it employs over 1,100 people and operates pharmacies in the Jersey Shore and Jersey City areas.
The chain has been open for decades, and the company has continued to operate in New England, including its original home in Manhattan.
Epperd was one of only a handful of pharmacy chains that were able to continue operating as long as the Salmonelliosis Outbreak at the chain did not reach New York.
In addition to New York’s outbreak, the chain has also faced a Salmoney outbreak in California in 2011, and in 2012, the state of Connecticut closed its Eckerda Pharmacy after the department discovered that employees were not getting the proper vaccines.

The New Haven Health Department is also investigating the possibility that the New England Regional Health District has been infected by Salmonezia serovar Typhimurium, according the Newburyport Press.
In New Jersey and New York health officials are also looking into whether there was a connection between the outbreaks and the outbreak in New Orleans.
The Newark Star-Ledger reported that the Newark Health Department notified New Jersey officials of the potential outbreak on Thursday.
NJDEHS and the Newburgh City Health Department have said that they are taking steps to determine whether there is any connection between New York state and the Salisbury, New Hampshire outbreak. New
