La Mex Salmonella Lawyer Update: Salmonella outbreak linked to Mexican Restaurant in Illinois.

A health alert was issued by the Grundy County Health Department in Illinois on September 10, 2021. The alert was issued to warn the residents of Grundy County regarding a salmonella outbreak linked to the local Mexican food restaurant, La Mex located in E. Jackson Street in Morris Illinois. The restaurant was voluntarily closed after health department officials informed the business about the recent reports of consumers becoming ill after eating food purchased at the restaurant. At this time, at least eight salmonella cases have been linked to the outbreak.

The outbreak investigation is recent, and the Grundy County Health Department stated in their health alert that they are currently working along with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Morris radio station WCSJ announced the salmonella outbreak investigation and stated, “At this point, the Grundy County Health Department said that this outbreak does not appear to be directly correlated to operating errors or issues in the establishment, but with the food sold by their suppliers.” Not much is known about the salmonella outbreak linked to La Mex, but the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) has stated that it is an ongoing investigation.

Public Health officials are urging consumers who may have purchased and consumed food from the restaurant La Mex between 8/31/2021 to 9/7/2021 to remain vigilant for symptoms of salmonella. Healthcare providers have also been advised to ask patients if they have eaten at this restaurant in the days prior to illness onset. According to the IDPH, if a person has experienced symptoms of salmonella after eating food from La Mex, they may be part of the outbreak and should see a doctor as soon as possible.

People who have ingested food contaminated with salmonella bacterium may begin to experience symptoms within 6 to 72 hours after consumption of the contaminated product. Symptoms of salmonella normally include diarrhea that may at times be bloody, fever, chills, and abdominal pain. Ron Simon, a National Salmonella Lawyer, stated: 

“A Salmonella infection is usually diagnosed by a positive culture from a stool sample of the infected person. Unfortunately, many people do not provide a stool sample, or their physician fails to order a stool culture, making it very difficult to link the illness to a particular outbreak.  We recommend everyone who suffers from food poisonings get a stool culture to assist health agencies find the source of an outbreak and to assist in recuperating medical expenses and other costs associated with acquiring food poisoning.”
