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”
