TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A local meat market will remain closed for now after 22 people became ill last weekend.

Nicole Hamm with the Kansas Department of Agriculture told 13 News officials conducted a hazard and critical control point inspection at Carniceria Camecuaro on 1016 SE 6th, following the process of the food from delivery to cooling.

On Sunday, 22 people became ill after eating the restaurant's pork and green tomato salsa.

Hamm says officials were going to return to the establishment Friday to make sure the meat and salsa properly cooled.

The findings from Friday's inspection will determine if Carniceria Camecuaro will remain open, or if another assessment will need to be conducted to help the meat market meet it's requirements.
