Pritzker Hageman Representing Client Sickened With Listeria

The law firm of Pritzker Hageman is representing a client, 50-year-old Craig Moraski, of Bellevue, Nebraska, after he was sickened with a Listeria monocytogenes infection. He ate chicken salad from a tub purchased from Sam’s Club in Papillon, Nebraska that was allegedly made from frozen precooked chicken sold by Tip Top Poultry┬áto the E.A. Sween Company. Tip Top recalled their frozen cooked diced chicken in late September 2019 for possible Listeria contamination.

There have been several secondary recalls of chicken salad and chicken salad sandwiches made with Tip Top chicken in the past few days. In addition, a Listeria monocytogenes outbreak linked to cooked chicken in Canada is being investigated by Public Health Canada. Canadian officials stated on the outbreak notice that a Listeria monocytogenes outbreak in the U.S. is being investigated. The CDC and FDA have not yet linked any product to the U.S. outbreak.

Food safety attorney Fred Pritzker said, “While I’m not a doctor, the best advice I have been given by doctors is that if you might have been exposed to Listeria monocytogenes and you have symptoms associated with it, you should see a doctor as soon as possible. Listeria symptoms include:

  • Flu-like fever and muscle aches (if pregnant, even mild flu-like symptoms should be investigated)
  • Significant upset stomach or diarrhea
  • Stiff neck, headache, loss of balance, confusion or convulsions.

Also, if Listeria infection (listeriosis) is a possibility, the doctor should do a stool culture to confirm it. This is very important for proper treatment, assisting the health department in tracking down where you got it from, and providing evidence if you ever want to file a legal claim.”

Listeriosis is a serious medical condition. Most of those who contract this infection are hospitalized because they are so sick. While there are only about 1,600 cases of listeriosis in the U.S. every year, about 20% of those patients die.

If you have eaten prepared purchased chicken salad or products made with chicken salad, and have been ill with the symptoms of listeriosis, see a doctor, especially if you are in a high risk group, are pregnant, or are elderly.
