La Luz Mexican Grill reopened yesterday morning after a salmonella outbreak at the Old Town Fort Collins restaurant sickened 30 people. The restaurant, 200 Walnut St., voluntarily closed on Aug. 21 when the illness was confirmed.
Larimer County Health Department spokesperson Katie O’Donnell said there were 30 confirmed salmonella illnesses linked to the case. Investigators still haven’t been able to determine the exact source of the outbreak.
The entire Old Town La Luz staff completed a required ServSafe Food Handler program at The Cooking Studio. Employees who tested positive for salmonella have been allowed to return to work only after testing negative twice.
