    Three students at the University of Maryland at College Park have been sickened with salmonella, prompting state and local health officials to investigate.

    David McBride is the director of the University Health Center. He said in a statement Friday that two of the students had eaten at dining facilities on campus while the third one ate elsewhere.

    McBride says "there is no indication at this time that the source of this infection came from campus."

    Salmonella is among the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses and can cause symptoms like abdominal cramps, diarrhea and fever.
