The press release states that “The source of the outbreak is the Burrito Delight restaurant, which has voluntarily closed both of its locations in Fort Lupton and Dacono.” Officials are still investigating the outbreak.

Employees are being tested for illness, and lab results from food samples have not yet been received. Officials are centering their investigation around possible food sources.

The case count by county is: Weld (27), Larimer (3), Boulder (3), Morgan (1), and Adams (1). There is no word on whether or not any of these patients have been hospitalized.

Weld County has also broken down the cases by event. There were two events held at Aims Community College that were catered by Burrito Delight. Four people who attended the first event at Aims Community College are part of this outbreak. Thirteen people who attended at second Aims Community College event are sick. Thirteen people who ate at the Burrito Delight restaurant in Fort Lupton are ill. And five people who bought takeout food from the restaurant are sick.

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include diarrhea that may be bloody, an upset stomach, muscle aches, abdominal craps and pain, fever, and vomiting. Most people are sick for about a week, and most people recover without medical intervention. Symptoms usually begin 6 to 72 hours after eating contaminated food.
