Red Onions Salmonella Lawyer Update: Salmonella Cases Continue to Increase as the First Lawsuit against Thomson International is Filed.
With the number of increased cases linked to the multi-state Salmonella Newport outbreak, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued an update to their previous outbreak report on August 7, 2020. The number of cases linked to the outbreak has now increased to almost 900 laboratory-tested cases in both the U.S. and Canada. In their new report, the CDC informed the public that although onion products believed to be linked to the outbreak have been involved in a recall the number of cases has continued to increase dramatically. As of August 6, 2020, the numbers of cases in the US have increased to 640 in 43 states; thankfully no deaths have been reported but the number of hospitalizations rose to 85.
In the recent CDC update of the multi-state Salmonella Outbreak, it was announced that other brands of the onion products may be linked to the increased number of cases. The brands potentially linked to the outbreak are Thomson Premium, TLC Thomson International, Tender Loving Care, El Competitor, Hartley’s Best, Onions 52, Majestic, Imperial Fresh, Kroger, Utah Onions, and Food Lion. On August 1, 2020, a recall was issued on multiple products believed to be involved with the outbreak, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) even issued a warning to customers, retail stores and restaurant’s advising them to refrain from buying, selling, and serving the potentially contaminated onion products.
On August 3, 2020, the first lawsuit in the Red Onion Salmonella Outbreak was filed by the national food poisoning law firm of Ron Simon & Associates, along with Gomez Trial Attorneys. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of a woman who was hospitalized for 12 days for acute salmonellosis after consuming onions she purchased from Stater Bros Markets. In an interview Ron Simon, a national food poisoning lawyer, stated:
“We have yet to find out how many victims there will be in the red onion salmonella outbreak linked to Thomson International, Inc. This is likely to be the largest salmonella outbreak of 2020.”
The Salmonella Outbreak is believed to continue increasing in numbers as more people begin to get tested for salmonella in the coming weeks. The FDA along with the CDC is advising consumers who have onions potentially contaminated at home to dispose of them in a proper manner. As there is no way to distinguish products contaminated with salmonella bacteria from their looks, smell, or taste people who experience symptoms such as diarrhea, fever, nausea, vomiting, and stomach cramps should contact a medical health care provider as soon as they are able to.
