At the time, the Pinal County Public Health Services District ("PCPHSD") reported that at least 22 people had been affected. Today, the agency increased that count to 38 people, at least four of whom required hospitalization.

The outbreak is linked to two events held at the Windmill Winery on March 18 and 19, 2015. PCPHSD has identified the catering company that prepared the food as Kiss the Chef. Thomas Schyer, the Director of PCPHSD, reported that the caterer was operating illegally as the kitchen it utilized to prepare the food "was not authorized to be cooked in." Additionally, Windmill Winery had exceeded its legally permissible level of food preparation.
