Salmonella outbreak continues

It's been two months since Cargill recalled more than 37 million pounds of ground turkey products after they were tied to a multi-state outbreak of salmonella outbreak. Recently, an additional 185,000 pounds were recalled.

The Centers for Disease Control reported that the antibiotic-resistant strain of salmonella has been associated with approximately 100 people getting sick sending many to the hospital, and one death.

These cases occurred between February 27 and September 13, 2011 in 34 states, including California. The CDC is advising consumers to check their freezers for any of this recalled product and should not eat if found.

Anyone infected with salmonella may develop a fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea 12 to 72 hours after ingesting the product.

Most times, the victim will recover within a week without treatment. However, the symptoms can be severe and require hospitalization.

If you have gotten sick after eating any of this product, see your doctor immediately and then contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will investigate your case to determine if you can be compensated for your medical expenses and pain and suffering.
