According to the local media, a local restaurant chain has been shut down by the local health department due to “a slew of health violations” and “unsanitary working conditions that appear to be linked to a Salmonella outbreak in the area.”

The health department recommends that customers of the “Los Amigos Taqueria Brighton location between May 12 and May 18 to monitor themselves for symptoms of Salmonella infection, including fever, diarrhea, and abdominal pain, and to contact a healthcare provider for an evaluation and testing if appropriate.”

Health agents’ report said that “multiple rodent droppings” were also found on pineapple cans, bags of pinto beans, single-use beverage holders, and storage tables.

The investigation is ongoing.
