Texas Salmonella Outbreak at 59 Cases; Lawsuit Filed

ResistantSalmonellaFeaturedAt least 59 people have reportedly been sickened in a Salmonella outbreak connected in part to the Ten in Texas steakhouse in Dalhart, TX.

One of the restaurant’s customers who was sickened, Frances Childers, is filing a lawsuit against the restaurant. Her attorneys say that she suffered from kidney failure, along with abdominal pains, nausea and muscle aches.

Childers is being represented by Houston attorney John C. Ramey and Seattle-based food safety attorney Bill Marler (his law firm, Marler Clark, underwrites Food Safety News).

At least 30 of the 59 reported cases are linked to Ten in Texas, with more cases cropping up in Dalhart and nearby communities.

The original source of the outbreak has not been found, though health officials are still conducting an investigation.

Ten in Texas voluntarily closed for a week to undergo cleaning and sanitization.

Other cases have appeared in the communities of Bushland and Amarillo. For the most part, those cases have no apparent connection to the Dalhart steakhouse.
