So far, no specific food has been identified as the culprit and the authority is urging people who have leftovers from the event to dispose of them due to possible risk of contamination.

“Those who consumed food at the supper served at Hogfest, who have not already been contacted through the public health investigation, should please call the Public Health Disease Control office in Saskatoon at 306-655-4612,” said the authority in their release.
