According to press reports, more cases of Salmonella have been linked to Boston area Los Amigos Taquería locations. 

Laboratory testing has confirmed 45 cases of the bacterial infection in customers of the Brighton restaurant, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health said Thursday. That’s up from 33 cases earlier in the week. 

Of the 45 confirmed cases, 29 are in Boston residents, the officials said, and there are more reports of undiagnosed illnesses associated with those locations of the popular restaurants.

The restaurants were closed last week after the outbreak of Salmonella was detected.
