Update May 26, 2023

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health informed on May 25, 2023, that laboratory testing has confirmed 45 cases of salmonella infection in customers of the Brighton restaurant.

The Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC), Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and Boston Inspectional Services Department are investigating an emerging Salmonella outbreak linked to Los Amigos Taqueria located at 366 Washington Street in Brighton, affecting residents in the Brighton, Boston, and Greater Boston area. The BPHC urged residents who visited the 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.

According to the news, this location in Brighton was closed on May 18. Additionally, there was another location in West Roxbury, that had its license to operate suspended following an inspection on Friday, May 19.

In case you are experiencing Salmonella symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.
