A second lawsuit has been filed against Subway in connection with an outbreak of shigella from food served at the west suburban sandwich shop.
Barbara Romero claims she had to be hospitalized after eating toasted chicken and onion teriyaki sandwiches from the Subway restaurant in Lombard.
The DuPage County Health Department closed that Subway on March 4 following several reports of illness from customers. Health officials confirm at least 50 cases of shigella poisoning are linked to food from that restaurant. Ten of those people were hospitalized.
