Salmonella Lawsuits

Salmonalla food poisoning can be caused by negligence during the manufacturing or preparation of food products. The salmonella bacteria is one of the most common causes of food poisoning, and it could lead to severe and potentially fatal illness for some people.

REVIEW A SALMONELLA LAWSUIT: Food poisoning lawyers review potential lawsuits for salmonella poisoning which can be traced to a particular manufacturer, retailer, restaurant or food preparer. In most cases, food poisoning lawsuits are filed after a widespread salmonella outbreak causes a large number of people to get sick.


OVERVIEW: Salmonella is a type of bacteria which can cause mild to severe infection of the gastrointestinal tract. There are many different strains of the bacteria which can cause illness, but some of the more common strains which have been linked to salmonella outbreaks include:

  • Salmonella Enteritidis
  • Salmonella Typhimurium
  • Salmonella Saintpaul

SALMONELLA FOOD POISONING SYMPTOMS: According to health officials, over 40,000 cases of Salmonellosis are reported in the U.S. every year. Symptoms of salmonella food poisoning usually appear within 12 to 72 hours after consuming contaminated food, and for most health adults the symptoms resolve within a few days or weeks.

Salmonellosis symptoms could include:

  • Abdominal Cramps
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Bloody Diarrhea
  • Fever

In severe cases, salmonella bacteria can spread from the intestines through the bloodstream to other sites in the body. Young children, the elderly and those who are immunocompromised are the most at risk for severe food poisoning after eating foods contaminated with the salmonella bacteria. In some cases, if the food poisoning is not properly treated it can lead to fatal injuries.

SAMONELLA OUTBREAKS: In many cases, food that is contaminated with salmonella during manufacturing or processing causes a large number of people to become sick. Recent salmonella food poisoning outbreaks have included:
