Raw Pet Food Salmonella Lawyer Update: Texas Tripe Inc. Raw Pet Food Supplies Recall Due to Salmonella and Listeria Concerns.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on August 14th the ongoing recall of Texas Tripe Raw Pet food supplies. The recall of the pet supply product began on July 3rd after the FDA and the Office of the Texas State Chemist (OTSC) shared their test results with the firm.  Teh test results showed the presence of  both Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes contamination. The OTSC collected 23 finished product samples from Texas Tripe Inc.  Of the 23 samples, 16 tested positive for L. mono and/or Salmonella.

The recalled Texas Tripe affected products were sold directly to consumers in 24 states in frozen 20-pound and 40-pound cases. Texas Tripe notified some of its customers of the recall via email directly before the recall was announced to the public.

According to Raw Pet Food Salmonella Lawyer Ron SImon, Salmonella is a bacterium that can cause illness and death in humans and animals, especially those who are very young, very old, or have weak immune systems. According to the FDA pet foods and treats contaminated with Salmonella and L. mono are of particular public health importance because they can affect both human and animal health. Pets can get sick from these pathogens and may also be carriers of the bacteria and pass it on to their human companions without appearing to be ill. People can get sick from handling contaminated pet foods and treats or touching surfaces that have had contact with the contaminated pet foods and treats.

In June 2019, a similar recall took place involving Pet Supplies Plus and Lennox Intl Inc. The recall was due to pig ear products contaminated with salmonella, according to the CDC the pig ear products were linked to a salmonella outbreak that affected over 30 states and made 127 people ill. Ron Simon, a national salmonella lawyer who is representing families affected by the pig ear salmonella outbreak, noted “In one study, almost half of the 500 outbreaks investigated over a 10-year period were related to animals or animal products.”

The FDA advises customers who have any of the recalled products to stop feeding them to their pets and throw them away in a secure container where other animals, including wildlife, cannot access them. Consumers who have had this products in their homes should clean refrigerators and freezers where the products were stored and clean and disinfect all bowls, utensils, food prep surfaces, pet bedding, toys, floors, and any other surfaces that the food or pet may have had contact with.

The Grille Salmonella Lawyers Update: 17 Confirmed Cases Likely linked to Eggs

On March 15th, it was reported that The Grille at Gold Dust West, owned by Jacob’s Entertainment, in Elko, Nevada was investigated by the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health because of the possibilities of the restaurant being linked to a salmonella outbreak.

The Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DHHS) decided to investigate the restaurant after it was discovered to be linked to 17 confirmed salmonella cases.  According to the DHHS their staff arrived to begin their investigation on March 11th, public information officer Martha Framsted stated in an email to the Elko Daily Free Press ““The business has not been closed and is cooperating with the investigation.”

John East, Jacob’s Entertainment’s Chief Operating Officer, stated that in their investigation the DHHS asked the restaurant to remove eggs from their menu. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) eggs can become contaminated with salmonella from poultry, through the laying process. The chickens themselves may harbor Salmonella bacteria and that bacteria can be in the hens’ ovaries, which means the pathogen is encapsulated in the egg before the shell forms.

According to the CDC most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most persons recover without treatment. There are cases in which the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Young children, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems are the most likely to have severe infections.

Ron Simon, a national salmonella lawyer who has won over $700,000,000 for his clients, stated “Foods contaminated with Salmonella usually look, smell, and taste normal.  Contaminated food sources typically associated with Salmonella are poultry, eggs, red meat, raw milk, and dairy products”

Sun View Produce Salmonella Lawyer Update: Four Reported Salmonella Cases.

Sun View Produce, a grocery store located at 6110 West 63rd Street in Chicago, was linked to a salmonella outbreak in which four people reported positive for salmonella after purchasing pork tamales or carnitas from the deli section.

The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) decided to investigate the grocery store after they started to receive reports of people infected with salmonella during the month of July from eating pork tamales and carnitas at the Sun View Produce grocery store.

CDPH is working with the grocery store to provide guidance on safe food handling and cleaning practices to prevent further spread of the salmonella outbreak. Public Health officials have stated that as of August 5, the contaminated food items are no longer available at the store and there is no evidence that food made after this date poses a risk. CDPH has also issued an alert to area physicians about the outbreak, providing medical guidance.

Public Health officials have urged customers who have eaten or purchased any of the contaminated food from the Sun View Produce deli during the month of July and are experience symptoms such as diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps to contact a medical health care provider. The CDPH stated that although most infections resolve without antibiotics, older individuals or those with weakened immune systems may need medical evaluation and treatment.

Ron Simon, a national Salmonella Lawyer, stated:

More than 95% of Salmonella infections are transmitted by the consumption of foods contaminated with the bacteria… Salmonella infects people of all age groups and backgrounds. Infants, the elderly, and people who have compromised immune systems are at greater risk of severe or complicated disease.”

A spoke person of the Nassau County Department of Health stated that more than a dozen people have been tested positive for salmonella. According to the Health Department spokesperson the people who tested positive for the bacterial infection began feeling symptoms after eating at Brixx and Barley. Health officials stated that the salmonella outbreak could potentially date back to early July.

The Department of Health has stated that it is unclear whether the initial source of the contamination is from the restaurant, or a supplier up-stream, but until their investigation is complete they have decided to shut down Long Beach’s Brixx and Barley. Health department officials said they are still investigating the outbreak and they are awaiting more test results, and as such it iremains uncertain when Brixx and Barley will reopen. A note has been posted on the Brixx and Barley’s door stating:

“We are voluntarily closing the restaurant to ensure any potential problems are properly rectified while working closely with the health department. The safety of our customers is our No. 1 priority.”

Salmonella infection is a bacterial disease that affects the intestinal tract. People who have dined at Brixx and Barley, 152 West Park Ave, Long Beach, NY, around early July and are experiencing symptoms of Salmonella such as:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Headache
  • Blood in the stool

Should seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Ron Simon, a national Salmonella Lawyer, explains the origins of most salmonella outbreaks, including the Brixx and Barley Salmonella Outbreak:

“salmonella bacteria are usually transmitted to humans who unknowingly consume food contaminated with the feces . . .  The majority of the human infections stem from the widespread presence of the bacteria in lower-order animals.  Beef and poultry products constitute the largest and most common sources of the bacteria, though Salmonella is also often found in unpasteurized milk, eggs, fish, and produce.”

At the moment the FDA is working with impacted firms to remove pig ear pet treats from the marketplace and identify places where they may have been distributed. Two firms have issued recalls on their pig ear dog treats, the first one to issue their recall was Pet Supplies Plus who issued their recall on July 3rd, and Lennox who recalled their pig ear products on July 26 after it was discovered that some of their pig ear dog treats may have been potentially contaminated with salmonella.
