E Coli Food Poisoning
E Coli is a serious type of food poisoning that comes from the intestines of cattle and other animals. Most E coli outbreaks come from foods such as ground beef, spinach, lettuce, pizza, unpasteurized apple and orange juice, milk and most recently, hazelnuts. TSR Injury Law Firm represents one of the people affected by the recent E Coli Hazelnut Outbreak.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 73,000 E Coli infections in the United States per year with an average of 2,100 cases being severe enough that the patient is hospitalized. There are several symptoms of E Coli, some of which can be potentially life threatening, especially to young children or the elderly. This includes:
- Abdominal cramping and diarrhea
- Gall stones
- Dizziness, hallucinations, tremors and other central nervous system complications
- Kidney failure
- Heart problems
- Seizures and coma
- Stroke and heart problems including heart attacks and congestive heart failure
Salmonella Food Borne Illness Lawsuits
Salmonella poisoning occurs when a person comes in contact with the group of bacteria termed salmonella which can result in a number of serious illness including Salmonella Enteritidis and typhoid. Most salmonella cases are found due to uncooked meats, soil and water. In many instances you may suffer from a minor case of salmonella poisoning and not even realize it apart from the mild upset stomach and cramping. In other instances, however, you could become extremely sick due to this food borne illness.
Salmonella Poisoning Lawsuits
Salmonella often causes stomach cramping as well as diarrhea which can lead to hospitalization, especially in children and in the elderly. There have been lawsuits and instances of serious illness as well as death due to salmonella poisoning found in King Nut peanut butter, cantaloupes, chicken, ground beef and tuna. Some of the cases have resulted at a restaurant while others involve foods that have been sold in regular grocery stores.
