What’s the problem?
August 16, 2010 – Last week, An Ohio victim of the Salmonella outbreaks linked to Taco Bell filed a food poisoning lawsuit in the Court of Common Pleas of Scioto County, Ohio. The lawsuit was filed against the food chain parent company Yum! Brands on behalf of a Scioto county resident by Bill Marler of food safety law firm Marler Clark and by Fred Wendel of the Columbus firm Stewart & DeChant.
Two parallel outbreaks of Salmonella have been identified by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), both linked to the Taco Bell restaurant chain. Salmonella Hartford and Salmonella Baildon have sickened at least 155 people in 21 states, sending more than 30% of the ill to the hospital. More than 60% of the victims reported eating at Taco Bell.
“Ohio has been hard-hit by these outbreaks,” said Marler. “Studies show that for every confirmed Salmonella illness in an outbreak, another 38.5 people who are sick don’t visit the doctor or don’t get tested. Using that math, close to a thousand Ohioans have likely been sickened. Many, like Tammy, are still trying to regain their health. At this point in the outbreak, our job is to help them do that.”
