In June and July, 2010, the Kenosha County Health Department investigated an outbreak of Salmonella Enteritidis at the Baker Street Restaurant and Pub located at 6208 Green Bay Road, Kenosha, Wisconsin. There were more than 30 illnesses associated with the outbreak. The health department temporarily closed the restaurant, and also tested the restaurant's employees before clearing them to return to work.
Marler Clark represented several individuals sickened in the outbreak. The law firm filed a Salmonella lawsuit on behalf of a client July 22, 2010. In August, the Baker street outbreak was linked to a larger, nationwide outbreak of Salmonella Enteritidis in shell eggs produced by Wright County Egg of Galt, Iowa. More than 288 million eggs were recalled, and Salmonella illnesses around the country were linked to the eggs. Marler Clark filed an amended lawsuit linking the two on August 18, 2010.
The law firm represented a dozen clients in legal claims against the companies whose egg products were associated with the Salmonella outbreak.
