Sometimes even produce can become a defective product. The food distribution companies Andrew & Williamson and Custom Produce Sales recently announced that certain batches of their cucumbers, imported from Mexico, were linked to a recent salmonella outbreak that has claimed two lives and infected 418 people so far. Both companies have recalled all of the cucumbers in the affected area from August 1 to the present.
According to Andrew & Williamson, the cucumbers had been put up for sale in Wal-Mart, Costco, Safeway, In-N-Out Burger, Whole Foods, and several other national chains.
If you have been diagnosed with salmonella poisoning, or have been feeling sick a few days after eating cucumbers, you may be a victim of this outbreak. The symptoms of salmonella poisoning may include:
- Abdominal Cramps
- Blood in Stool
If you are exhibiting any of these symptoms, you should go to a doctor and get checked for salmonella poisoning. The disease is especially harsh on infants, the elderly, people who are sick, and people whose immune systems are weakened or compromised.
Once you are receiving medical attention for your salmonella poisoning and have a doctor’s diagnosis, you should set up an appointment with the defective product attorneys at Long & Long, Attorneys at Law.
