Simon & Luke Collects More Salmonella Settlements
Today the food poisoning lawyers at national food safety firm Simon & Luke settled 8 claims for victims of a Salmonella Hvittingfoss outbreak that struck patrons of Illinois Subway restaurants last year.
The cases were resolved in mediation in San Diego. All settlement amounts are confidential.
Managing partner Ron Simon issued the following statement: “The clients are extremely pleased that the cases could get resolved. All of the parties and attorneys worked very hard to find common ground and put and end to this tragedy.”
The Salmonella Hvitingfoss Outbreak
The Illinois Department of Health investigated the Salmonella Hvittingfoss outbreak that sickened 109 in Illinois between April and June of 2010. The illnesses were linked to 48 Subway restaurants in 28 counties throughout the state. The IDPH concluded that a Central Illinois food distributor – Sysco Central Illinois, Inc. – was the common supplier of the contaminated lettuce, tomatoes, and olive that were consumed in Subway sandwiches.
The final outbreak totals were 109 confirmed cases (those that tested positive for the identical strain of Salmonella Hvittingfoss) and another 90 plus probable cases (those who were not tested but exhibited salmonella symptoms after consuming food from Subway).
The onset dates ranged from April 25 to June 30. Of the victims, 28 were hospitalized.
Of the 35 counties in which the victims resided, Sangamon County had the most cases with 14, followed by Christian and Ogle counties with 9 apiece.
