We have filed two lawsuits on behalf of two victims of the Salmonella Saintpaul outbreak linked to sprouts manufactured by CW Sprouts, a Nebraska Company.  For information about the outbreak, click here.  Keep in mind, studies have shown that the actual number of victims in any given outbreak is many times more than the number of culture-confirmed "cases"–i.e. by stool or blood test.  Some people don’t seek medical attention, but are no less infected by the bacterium or virus; and some, like one of our clients in Colorado, are sick enough to have their intestines spilled out onto the operating table but their stool tests are negative.  Bottom line, you are no less a victim of an outbreak merely because your stool sample is not positive for Salmonella, E. coli O157:H7, hepatitis A, or any other bacterium or virus associated with foodpoisoning, assuming you have an epidemiological relationship to the outbreak.  Bottom line in the CW Sprouts outbreak, there may be hundreds sick across the midwest due to Salmonella-contaminated sprouts.
