KDHE officials said Friday that all the cases are in northeast Kansas. Agency spokeswoman Maggie Thompson said there were no more details.
The department also said it is investigating a sixth salmonella case to see if it is linked to the other five.
Most people infected with salmonella develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps, and most recover without treatment.
