Salmonella Sprout Lawsuit Linked to Sprouts and Seeds

Today we amended our complaint on behalf of “Daniel Krim, 49, [who] became ill after eating alfalfa sprouts on a turkey sandwich he purchased from a La Vista restaurant in late February. His flu-like symptoms worsened, forcing him to go to the emergency room at Midlands Hospital in Papillion. Days later, his doctor confirmed he had been infected with the Salmonella St. Paul strain, according to his lawsuit, filed last week in Sarpy County District Court.”

According to Leia Baez of the Omaha World-Herald, “Krim is suing CW Sprouts, Inc., whose SunSprouts products were linked to the outbreak in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Colorado and South Dakota. He also is suing Caudill Seed and Warehouse Co. of Louisville, Ky., the company that manufactured and sold alfalfa sprout seeds to CW Sprouts."
