Two People in South Dakota, One in Nebraska, and One in Minnesota Sickened in Fareway Chicken Salad Salmonella Outbreak

The large Salmonella Typhimurium outbreak linked to Fareway chicken salad has sickened more than 100 people in Iowa. But there are also ill persons in other states. That chicken salad, made by Triple T Specialty Meats, has now been recalled.

Fareway Chicken Salad Salmonella Outbreak

One person in Nebraska has been sickened, according to Leah Bucco-White, Public Information Officer of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. That person was hospitalized  because their illness was so serious. And two people in South Dakota are being investigated, according to Derrick Haskins, Communication Director of the South Dakota Department of Health; they may be associated with this outbreak. One of those people was hospitalized. And one person in Minnesota, living in Martin county, has been confirmed ill with Salmonella Typhimurium, according to information on the Minnesota Department of Health Facebook page.

The law firm of Pritzker Hageman has filed two lawsuits in this outbreak. One is for a patient in Iowa who was hospitalized after eating Fareway chicken salad purchased at a grocery store in Ankeny, Iowa. He was hospitalized after his illness was diagnosed, and he has still not completely recovered. The second lawsuit was on behalf of a mother who purchased Fareway chicken salad at a store in West Des Moines, Iowa. She was diagnosed with the illness after getting sick and going to the hospital twice.

The USFA has issued a public health alert about this issue. The product in question was sold at all Fareway grocery stores in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska, and South Dakota. The “Fareway Chicken Salad” was sold in plastic deli containers with a Fareway store deli label.

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include fever, abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea that may be bloody. These symptoms usually start 12 to 72 hours after ingesting food that contains the bacteria.

If you ate Fareway chicken salad and have been experiencing these symptoms, it’s important to see your doctor. Even though you will most likely recover completely after this infection, long term health complications can develop and your doctor should be aware of them. Those complications can include Reiter’s Syndrome, which can cause reactive arthritis, eye problems, high blood pressure, irritable bowel syndrome, and endocarditis, which is an infection of the heart.

You should know that class action lawsuits may not be appropriate for outbreak victims because each individual case is very different.
