Food safety attorney Fred Pritzker, who has represented many clients who have been sickened with Salmonella infections, said, “No one should get sick just because they went out to eat at a restaurant. We don’t yet know what caused this particular outbreak, but it could have been contaminated food or even a sick food worker.”

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea that may be bloody. People usually start to get sick 12 to 72 hours after exposure to the pathogen. Most people are sick for a few days up to a week, and most people get better without medical treatment. However, some, especially those in high risk groups such as those with chronic illnesses, the elderly, and young children, may become ill enough to be hospitalized.

To prevent these illnesses, always wash your hands after contact with animals, before and during food preparation, and after using the toilet or changing diapers. If you are sick, especially with a diarrheal illness, stay home from work or school. Food handlers should not work until they have been cleared by a doctor and confirmed by the Department of Health.

If you have been sick with these symptoms and have eaten at the Brixx and Barley Restaurant in Long Beach, New York, see your doctor. You could be part of this Salmonella outbreak.
