Salmonella Lawyers File 3rd Lawsuit in Fareway/Triple T Chicken Salad Outbreak

Salmonella lawyers Ryan Osterholm and Lindsay Lien Rinholen have filed a third lawsuit in the Salmonella Typhimurium outbreak that is linked to Fareway/Triple T chicken salad. The producer of the salad, Triple T Specialty Meats, sold the salad to Fareway grocery stores in the Midwest. Fareway repackaged it and sold it at the deli counters in their 118 stores.

The lawsuit, case number LACV079697, was filed on February 22, 2018, in Iowa District Court in Johnson County. Their client is a woman who purchased the salad from the Fareway store at 615 Westwood Drive in North Liberty, Iowa on February 3, 2018.

On February 8, she began feeling sick with the typical symptoms of a Salmonella infection, concluding fever, diarrhea, a loss of appetite, nausea, and stomach pain. She was admitted to the hospital on February 14, 2018 where she was diagnosed with Salmonella Typhimurium food poisoning. Officials at the Iowa Department of Public Health told her that she is part of this outbreak.

Attorney Ryan Osterholm said, “Some people can develop lifelong health problems after a Salmonella infection. Others, like our client, can become seriously ill and need hospitalization and long term medical care.” You can contact Ryan at 1-888-377-8900 or 612-338-0202.

Doctors were concerned that the client, who received a new liver in a transplant in December 2017, could reject the organ. She was hospitalized in the ICU until February 20, 2018. She is now out of the hospital, but will require extensive medical care for some time as doctors need to monitor her health closely.

The lawsuit alleges that Fareway and Triple T Specialty Meats are responsible for the illnesses that were caused by the contaminated salad. Both entities must sell foods that do not make people sick. Triple T must prepare food and control for pathogenic bacteria, and Fareway must use suppliers and materials that are safe, wholesome, and comply with federal, state, and local laws.

The Iowa Department of Public Health has linked at least 115 illnesses, some confirmed and some probable, to this outbreak as of February 20, 2018. Those numbers will most likely change today. And the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has launched an investigation. They say that there are 65 confirmed cases of Salmonella Typhimurium linked to Fareway chicken salad in five states: Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Illinois, and Texas.

If you have eaten Fareway/Triple T chicken salad and have been suffering with the symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning, see your doctor. Those symptoms include muscle aches, tiredness, fever, loss of appetite, abdominal cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea that may be bloody.
