Salmonella Lawsuit Filed Against Smokey’s Pub N Grill in Minnesota

A Salmonella lawsuit has been filed against Smokey’s Pub N’ Grill, located at 552 Lincoln Drive in East Bethel, Minnesota, on behalf of a couple by attorneys at the Pritzker Hageman law firm. The lawsuit was filed in Minnesota District Court, County of Ramsey, on February 19, 2018, with case number 62-CV-18-1017.

Smokey's Salmonella Lawsuit

The lawsuit alleges that the couple ate at that facility, which is a bar and restaurant, on January 26, 2018. The husband had a pulled pork sandwich, tater tots, and coleslaw. The wife had a chicken melt sandwich and fries, and shared some of her husband’s food. They also shared a barbecue chicken pizza.

The next day, they started experiencing the symptoms of a Salmonella infection, including vomiting, fatigue, diarrhea, stomach pain, and body aches. They visited a doctor, and were hospitalized from February 1 to February 4, 2018. The husband suffered renal failure.

Lab tests revealed that they had been sickened by Salmonella bacteria. The Minnesota Department of Health told the couple that their Salmonella illnesses, according to the lawsuit, had been linked to Smokey’s. At least eleven people are sick in this outbreak, according to court documents. Doug Schultz, of the Minnesota Department of Health, told Food Poisoning Bulletin that there is a Salmonella outbreak linked to Smokey’s, but could not comment further as the investigation is in the early stages.

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection usually begin 12 to 72 hours after exposure to the bacteria, but some people can get sick up to two weeks later. Most people do not visit a doctor when they contract this infection, so these cases are very underreported.

But some people can become seriously ill and need hospitalization. Dehydration and sepsis are the typical reasons for hospitalization.

If you ate at Smokey’s Pub N’ Grill and have been experiencing these symptoms, see your doctor. Salmonella infections can have long term health consequences. Patients can suffer from Reiter’s syndrome, which causes reactive arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, high blood pressure, and endocarditis after they recover from this illness.
