Public Health-Seattle and King County announced on Fri 17 Aug 2018
that it is investigating an outbreak of salmonellosis -- caused by
salmonella bacteria -- associated with Burien Fresh Smoothies. The
business has been closed pending "a thorough cleaning and disinfection
of their establishment, adoption of safe food handling practices to
minimize cross contamination risks, and after any remaining processed
ready-to-eat food products are discarded."

"At this time, the source of the illness has not been identified," the
agency said.

Authorities say that since 15 Aug 2018, 7 people from 3 separate meal
parties reported becoming ill after consuming food and beverage from
Burien Fresh Smoothies between 6-8 Aug 2018. Two of the ill people
were hospitalized and have since recovered.

There is no indication that any employees of the restaurant have had
any symptoms consistent with salmonellosis.

As part of the Public Health investigation, Environmental Health
investigators visited the restaurant on Wed 15 Aug 2018. Investigators
found that the restaurant was serving cooked pork prepared at the
restaurant owner's home, which is not an approved food safety
practice. The restaurant was directed to immediately stop serving
pork-based food items and to remove them from their menu.

However, on 16 Aug 2018, we identified a 4th ill person diagnosed with
salmonellosis after eating at Burien Fresh Smoothies on 7 Aug 2018.
This person did not eat any pork-based food items. On 16 Aug 2018, the
Environmental Health investigators revisited the establishment and
suspended its permit. On 17 Aug 2018, an additional 3 ill people were
identified (one person with lab-confirmed salmonellosis and 2 people
with symptoms consistent with salmonellosis).

Additionally, Environmental Health investigators are working closely
with Burien Fresh Smoothies owners to educate them about using only
approved food sources. The restaurant will be allowed to sell
pork-based foods once the food safety team determines that the owners
have secured an alternative approved source.

Five of the 7 people who got sick tested positive for _Salmonella_
Braenderup by a healthcare provider. We are still waiting for genetic
fingerprint results. Food samples were collected from the
establishment for laboratory testing; results are pending.

[A smoothie (occasionally spelled smoothee or smoothy)
(<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoothie>) is a thick, cold beverage
made from pureed raw fruit and sometimes vegetables. Smoothies are
often blended with other ingredients such as water, crushed ice, fruit
juice, sweeteners (e.g. honey, sugar, stevia, syrup), dairy products
(e.g. milk, yogurt, or cottage cheese, whey powder), plant milk, nuts,
nut butter, seeds, tea, chocolate, herbal supplements, or nutritional
supplements. A smoothie containing dairy products is similar to a
milkshake, though the latter typically contains less fruit and often
contains ice cream or frozen yogurt.
