Josephine County announced its investigation into a cluster of individuals with documented Salmonella potentially linked to Si Casa Flores, 202 N.E. Beacon Drive in Grants Pass. According to the health department’s notice, two individuals have been hospitalized. Here is everything we know about this Si Casa Flores Salmonella Outbreak:
According to the health department’s release:
“The outbreak is bigger than Southern Oregon, there are many other cases throughout the state. So this isn’t just isolated to just Southern Oregon,” said David Candelaria, Josephine Co. Public Health Officer.
The agency noted that they think produce may be the culprit.
As the numbers of Oregon cases continue to rise in the mystery multistate outbreak of Salmonella cases with a mystery source, it is likely that these two outbreaks may have a common food item. As the health agencies continue their investigation, it is likely we may see a link.
Salmonella bacteria live in the intestines of people, animals and birds. Most people are infected with salmonella by eating foods that have been contaminated by feces. Commonly infected foods include:
Salmonella infection is usually caused by eating raw or undercooked meat, poultry, eggs or egg products. The incubation period ranges from several hours to two days. Most salmonella infections can be classified as stomach flu (gastroenteritis). Possible signs and symptoms include:
Signs and symptoms of salmonella infection generally last two to seven days. Diarrhea may last up to 10 days, although it may take several months before bowels return to normal.
A few varieties of salmonella bacteria result in typhoid fever, a sometimes deadly disease that is more common in developing countries.
