Burrito Delight Salmonella Outbreak in Weld County, Colorado Increases to 37 Sick

The Salmonella outbreak linked to Burrito Delight restaurants in Weld County, Colorado has now sickened 37 people. That’s an increase from 35 people as reported in the last update on March 1, 2018. The illnesses have occurred during February and March of this year. Four of those patients have been hospitalized because their illnesses are so serious.

The restaurant has voluntarily closed both of its locations in Fort Lupton and Dacono, and they will remain closed until the investigation is over. Both of those locations are north of Denver, Colorado. Public health officials are still investigating the specific source of the outbreak; they are still focusing on possible food sources.

The case count by county is: Weld (27), Larimar (3), Boulder (3), Morgan (1), Adams (2), and Broomfield (1). The illnesses occurred among people who attended two events at Aims Community College, who ate in at the Fort Lupton restaurant, and people who purchased takeout. The case count by event is: Aims Event 1 (4), Aims Event 2 (13), Restaurant Dine-in (13), and Takeout to Place of Employment (7).

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include diarrhea that may be bloody, an upset stomach, stomach cramps, fever, and vomiting. Most people get sick within 6 to 72 hours after exposure to the pathogenic bacteria. And most people get better within four days to a week without medical treatment.

Both Burrito Delight restaurants had issues during restaurant inspections during the last few months. Some “marginal” reports were issued, with violations that could threaten public health.
