What’s the problem?
2000 – Taco Bell Hepatitis A Outbreak – Florida
In early December of 2000, the Lake County Health Department (LCHD) in Florida learned of seven hepatitis A cases, including five hospitalizations, in Lake and neighboring Sumter Counties in a two week span. LCHD notified the Florida Department of Health of a possible hepatitis A outbreak. A case study was conducted to determine the source of the outbreak, and ultimately revealed a strong association between cases and the consumption of food from a Taco Bell restaurant in Fruitland Park, Florida.
2006 – Taco Bell E. coli Lettuce Outbreak – Northeastern U.S.

Data evaluation indicated that shredded lettuce consumed at Taco Bell restaurants in the northeastern United States was the most likely source of the outbreak.
2010 – Taco Bell Salmonella Outbreak
