Salmonella Outbreak at X10 Restaurant in Dalhart TX Sickens 64

The Texas State Health Department states that there are 64 confirmed cases of Salmonella food poisoning in Dalhart, most from the X10 Texas Wood Fired Grill restaurant (otherwise known as 10 in Texas). Twelve additional cases have been reported since the restaurant voluntarily closed after illnesses were reported.

Restaurant kitchenFood poisoning attorney Fred Pritzker, who underwrites Food Poisoning Bulletin and has won millions for injured clients, said, “Most large food poisoning outbreaks are tied to restaurants. Unfortunately, many food workers do not get paid sick leave and are not properly trained in food safety skills by management. Outbreaks such as this one are not uncommon.”

Another full inspection has been conducted by public health officials since the outbreak was first announced. The restaurant is open for business again as it has passed the inspection after thorough sterilization and cleaning.

A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of a women who lost kidney function as a result of the illness she contracted after eating at the restaurant. Salmonella infections can have serious consequences, including long term complications such as reactive arthritis, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Anyone who ate at the restaurant and became ill with the symptoms of salmonellosis should see their doctor.

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, chills, headache, muscle pains, and blood in the stool. Some people become so seriously ill they must be hospitalized. Every year almost 400 Americans die after contracting a Salmonella infection.

Restaurants cause almost half of all food poisoning outbreaks. Restaurants are usually required to send sick employees home, depending on the laws in the state. This outbreak could have been caused by an ill employee, or from food that was not properly stored, cooked, or handled. Public health officials have not yet pinpointed the source of the pathogenic bacteria.
