The Larimer County Ministry of Health and the Environment (LCDHE) is investigating an outbreak of Salmonella disease at La Luz Mexican Restaurant in Fort Collins Old Town. As of 21 August, there are six confirmed cases with additional cases not yet completed. Some of the confirmed cases have been hospitalized
La Luz has proactively sought to identify the cause of the outbreak by working with the health department. First and foremost, La Luz focuses on the safety of its customers and the integrity of its food supply, and wants to prevent as much as possible any further illness. Out of concern for his customers and employees, La Luz has voluntarily closed down until more is known about the outbreak.
Salmonella are bacteria that can cause infections that affect the intestinal tract, urinary tract, bloodstream or other body tissues. Salmonella is often transmitted to humans by eating food. The bacteria can be found in many foods including raw meat, eggs, produce. Salmonella can be spread by sick people who handle food. Some infected individuals are asymptomatic and may unknowingly spread the infection.
Symptoms may include diarrhea, fever, abdominal cramping, vomiting, and bloody stools. Symptoms usually occur 6-72 hours after eating contaminated food and usually last 4 to 7 days. In severe cases, the symptoms may be prolonged or require hospitalization
