The plaintiff was not feeling well after the meal and over the next several days her condition worsened. She tested positive for the Shiga toxin producing E. coli at the Ingalls Memorial Hospital in Harvey on July 1. The same day, the Chicago Department of Public Health announced Carbón had voluntarily closed due to the outbreak that sickened 25 Chicago residents sick with the bacteria, sending five to hospitals.
