By MICHELLE BERRIERST The Associated PressCalifornia’s burger ban was the first of its kind in the nation in 20 years.
The ban is now in effect and the state has reported its first two deaths.
The state’s first death in January was of a man who died of an apparent heart attack after eating a burger in front of his parents.
The other two deaths were among people in California who were visiting relatives in Mexico who were planning to go to Mexico and eat burgers.
The ban was originally passed by a California legislature that included an amendment banning the sale of burgers to anyone under 18 years old.
It was amended in a 2015 version to ban people from buying burgers in places that serve alcohol and to ban all restaurants from serving burgers in the state.
The law is widely seen as a response to the outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease in California, which the state now blames on immigrants.
California has seen an increase in cases of the bacteria that cause it, and it has been blamed for a rise in the number of deaths and illnesses.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says about 4,800 people have died of the disease.
The majority have been young people.
