Santa Clara County Public Health Department Advice

The SCCPHD asks that “if you ate at Mariscos San Juan restaurant #3 (205 N. 4th Street in San Jose) on Friday or Saturday, October 16th or 17th, 2015, and you had sudden onset of diarrhea and fever within 1-2 days after eating there, please seek medical attention so that you can be tested and, if your symptoms are severe, receive treatment.”

Health officials also cautioned that people with diarrhea must not work, especially food service workers, healthcare providers, and childcare workers. Thorough, frequent hand washing is the best defense against infection and spreading the disease.

Diagnosis – A Stool Culture Can Confirm Shigella Food Poisoning

Shigella infection is diagnosed by a stool culture, a laboratory test that can detect the bacterium in the stool of an infected person. A stool culture can be ordered by your doctor if he or she thinks that it is appropriate.
