As... reported, all 20 individuals affected consumed food prepared at the Carniceria Guanajuato. The identified cases appear to have originated from those who have eaten the food since August 29, 2023. The taqueria voluntarily ceased operations on September 8, 2023, working closely with the CDPH to investigate the source of the infections. Health officials advise anyone who purchased prepared food from this location since August 29, 2023 to discard it immediately.
CDPH conducted an environmental assessment at the grocery store, offering advice on maintaining food safety and proper environmental cleaning to curb disease transmission. Additionally, an alert has been issued to local physicians, furnishing them with medical guidance regarding the outbreak.
Salmonella infection typically manifests within 6 to 72 hours after exposure and can last from four to seven days. Symptoms include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps.

The CDPH will continue monitoring the situation for additional reports affiliated with this outbreak.

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is investigating a food-borne disease outbreak linked to raw milk from Healthy Harvest Farm and Kitchen in Hillman, Minnesota. The product, potentially labeled as natural A2 milk, is linked to 8 cases of cryptosporidiosis and 1 case of E. coli O111:H8... illness.
The illnesses have been caused by Cryptosporidium parvum, a parasite commonly found in cattle. The cases have related subtypes of Cryptosporidium parvum, suggesting a common source. All patients reported having consumed the mentioned raw milk before falling sick. Among the affected include 4 children under ten, 1 of whom is hospitalized. One individual was diagnosed with both Cryptosporidium parvum and E. coli 0111:H8 infections concurrently. It’s noteworthy that multiple germ infections are a common occurrence in raw milk outbreaks.
Carrie Klumb, a senior epidemiologist at MDH, stated, “Cattle can naturally carry Cryptosporidium and E. coli in their digestive system and shed these germs in their manure even though the animal is not sick. Contamination of the milk with manure can occur during the milking process, and the germs won't be killed if the milk is not pasteurized.”
People infected with Cryptosporidium generally develop watery diarrhea, stomach cramps, loss of appetite and weight loss approximately a week after consuming contaminated foods or touching infected animals. The illness typically lasts for two weeks but symptoms may go in cycles in which people seem to get better for a few days and then feel worse again before the illness ends.
Symptoms of E. coli infections typically include stomach cramps and diarrhea, including bloody diarrhea. People typically become ill two to five days after consuming contaminated food. In some cases, people may develop severe illness that leads to hospitalization. Children under the age of 5 years old, adults over the age of 65 years old and those with weakened immune systems are most at risk.
The MDH urges anyone who may have recently purchased milk from Healthy Harvest Farm and Kitchen to discard the product and not consume it. The milk may be labeled natural A2 milk, and consumers may be unaware that the milk has not been pasteurized.
In case you experienced Cryptosporidiosis and/or E. Coli symptoms, report it now. 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.
