Third Salmonella Egg Lawsuit Filed and Request to Enter Wright Egg Sought

It has been a busy morning in the food safety business.  I was supposed to do a live interview via TV on CNN, but missed the 5:25 ferry to Seattle (it is actually at 5:20).  Thankfully, they let me do a phone in.  I am now off to San Francisco to visit with the Rivera family.  Linda, you might recall, has been hospitalized since May 2009 with E. coli O157:H7 complications.  In between I had the chance to finalize our third Salmonella Egg Complaint and request of Wright Egg lawyers that they allow us entry into the suspect facility.  Hopefully, it will not require an Order from the Court.

  • I just signed up a client who contracted salmonella poisoning in Santa Clara Co. on May, 29, 2010 at a banquet. She had previous gastro-intestinal problems so she was seriously affected; 2 hospitalizations and some residual problems. Preliminary investigation indicates the eggs may have come from Iowa. I am interested in referring to or associating with your firm on the case. Please contact me. Thank you, Don Hubbard
