Baker Street Restaurant Salmonella Outbreak Lawsuits

An outbreak of Salmonella at the Baker Street Restaurant and Pub in Kenosha, Wisconsin was linked to a nationwide outbreak of Salmonella in eggs in 2010. Marler Clark's attorneys represented a dozen clients in legal claims against the egg producers.

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.The plaintiff ate at the Baker Street Restaurant and Pub in Kenosha on Friday, June 18. On Monday, she woke with severe abdominal cramps and diarrhea. By Wednesday, her symptoms were so severe she went to the hospital for treatment, where it was determined that she had been infected with Salmonella Enteritidis. Her Salmonella was later linked to the Baker Street Restaurant outbreak.

In August 2010, the Baker Street Restaurant 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 E. coli attorneys at Marler Clark settled all clients claims, with settlements that included medical expenses and wage loss.
