Salmonella Lawyers File Lawsuit Against Firefly Restaurant in Las Vegas

A Pennsylvania woman has filed a lawsuit against the Firefly on Paradise, a Las Vegas restaurant. She is seeking compensation for allegedly contracting Salmonella food poisoning from the restaurant. She is being represented by Fred Pritzker, Brendan Flaherty and Ryan Osterholm, who are also representing several other people allegedly sickened in the outbreak.  Pritzker, Flaherty and Osterholm are part of PritzkerOlsen law firm’s Bad Bug Law Team.

GavelThe firm’s client is one of the 89 people sickened in a Salmonella outbreak associated with the Firefly. She and her husband were visiting Las Vegas in late April. On April 24, they ate dinner at Firefly on Paradise. Two days later, she developed symptoms that included nausea, fever, abdominal cramps and bloody diarrhea. She is still receiving medical treatment.
After the firm’s client and other sick patrons contacted the Southern Nevada Health District, health inspectors were sent to the restaurant to investigate.

They found multiple violations including: employees handling ready-to-eat food with bare hands, inadequate hand washing by food handlers; inadequate or missing cooling and heating logs for food; raw ground beef stored over cooked chicken and raw seafood; fruit flies and small moths in the cooking area; and broken cooking thermometers and foods not being held at proper temperatures. According to the complaint, those foods include but are not limited to: pork, calamari, garlic in oil, potatoes, tortilla empanada, lettuce, shrimp, mussels, claims, chicken and fish. The restaurant has been closed during the outbreak investigation to reduce the risk to public health.

The lawsuit was filed May 7 in District Court in Clark County, Nevada. The plaintiff is seeking full and fair compensation from the Firefly restaurant.
