Sweetwater County Environmental Health officials have traced a Salmonella outbreak to the Sand’s restaurant located on 9th Street in Rock Springs, Wyoming. At least eight patrons have become ill with Salmonella poisoning.
Resources for victims of Salmonella outbreaks are available on the Web, with sponsored sites on Salmonella and Salmonella litigation provided by Marler Clark, the Seattle law firm nationally recognized for its successful representation of victims of foodborne illness. The firm sponsors a Web site specifically about Salmonella, its symptoms, risks of infection, treatment, and news about outbreaks (see www.about-salmonella.com), as well as www.salmonellalitigation.com and www.salmonellablog.com.
“We know that many people turn to the Web as their first source of information, and having represented hundreds of victims of Salmonella poisoning, we have heard time and again how helpful the information provided on this site is,” said William Marler, managing partner of Marler Clark.
“Victims suffer from intense abdominal cramping, bloody diarrhea, and nausea. Many have to be hospitalized, and most miss work,” Marler continued. “It is natural for them to want to find out more about this illness, and we are providing one of the most comprehensive resources on Salmonella that is out there on the Internet.”
