Outbreak Associated with Mexico Viejo restaurant in Taylorsville, North Carolina
Health Director Leeanne Whisnant told news outlets that more than 30 people got sick after eating at that facility on June 20, 2018.
Chicken is one menu item being looked at as a possible source of the outbreak of illnesses. However, there is some indication that some of the people sickened did not eat chicken.
This does not necessarily mean that chicken was not the source of the outbreak because cross-contamination is possible. In addition, someone sickened at a restaurant can infect another person.
