Seven people sick in Illinois after national Salmonella outbreak

Seven people have gotten sick in the state of Illinois after a national outbreak of salmonella occurred. The outbreak has been linked to ground turkey, but no recall has been made because federal officials have not identified the exact source.

The first case in Illinois appeared in March and the last was June 29. There have been a total of 77 cases in 26 states across the nation. There was also one death.

According to the Illinois State Department of Public Health, cases have occurred in the following counties: Cass, Dupage, Will, Williamson, and Madison. Salmonella contamination is known to cause intestinal problems.

If you have become ill after consuming contaminated turkey, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Kankakee product liability lawyers of Spiros Law, P.C., today by calling (815) 929-9292 today.
