In August 2018 Public Health Seattle King County (PHSKC) investigated an outbreak of Salmonella Braenderup associated with Burien Fresh Smoothies in Burien, Washington. Seven people from 3 separate dining parties reported becoming ill after consuming food and beverage from Burien Fresh Smoothies from August 6-8. Five people were laboratory confirmed. Two of the ill people were hospitalized. There were no deaths. There was no indication that any of the employees at the restaurant were symptomatic.
