Marler Blog Providing Commentary on Food Poisoning Outbreaks & Litigation

Wal-Mart Salmonella Litigation

Indiana State health officials report the source of the recent salmonella outbreak is the Wal-Mart on 1133 North Emerson in Greenwood. The deli and bakery departments have been identified as the source of the recent salmonella outbreak impacting at least 84 people in northern Johnson and southern Marion counties. Wal-Mart officials report that all employees from the deli and bakery areas have been moved to other parts of the store until the investigation is complete. They have also discarded all possibly contaminated foods, and cleaned and sanitized both departments. "We believe food handlers who didn’t have any symptoms may have contaminated the deli and bakery products," said Lynae Granzow, enteric epidemiologist, Indiana State Department of Health. State health officials say the salmonella contamination occurred at the store. Marler Clark has filed a lawsuit against Wal-Mart and has been contacted by over a dozen others who became ill.

    Worst illness I’ve ever had to withstand.
