A number of press reports have announced that a Mexican restaurant in Fairfield, California has been linked with cases of food poisonings. The Solano County Department of Health said that it has found 32 cases of food poisonings. Dr. Michael Stacey of the Solano County Department of Health said that one thing was common in all the 32 cases that they were linked with Alejandro’s Taqueria.
Those who have fallen sick have eaten at Alejandro’s from May 26 to May 29. Most cases of Campylobacteriosis take place by eating raw or undercooked poultry or from cross-contamination of other food items. Symptoms of it include diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. There is a possibility that diarrhea may be bloody and may be accompanied with nausea and vomiting. Majority of people recover within few days. But there can be instances where people with weakened immune systems may suffer from chronic illness.
The restaurant will reopen again once it becomes sure that things are under control.
