GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Public health officials are investigating a cluster of Salmonella cases linked to a Grants Pass restaurant that has resulted in two hospitalizations, according to Josephine County Public Health.

The agency said that multiple cases of documented Salmonella were “potentially linked” to Si Casa Flores on NE Beacon Drive. Public health officials inspected the restaurant and collected 17 specimens for lab testing, with results expected this weekend.

“Si Casa Flores Corporation has been working closely with Public Health specialists to identify the source of the outbreak and ensure the continued safety of Si Casa customers,” Josephine County Public Health said in a statement.

Due to ingredients shared between local restaurants, state and local authorities are asking that anyone who has eaten at three Si Casa Flores-owned locations in Grants Pass from June 25 to July 7 complete an online survey. This includes the Beacon Drive location, the NW F Street location, and the Xpress trailer on Union Avenue.
