The results of a case-control study indicated that ill individuals were more likely to have consumed fruit salad than controls, and the possibility that the fruit had been contaminated before it arrived at the restaurant was investigated but was ultimately ruled out.
Results of stool samples tested by RCEH and CDPHE revealed that nine Seasons on the Pond employees were positive for Salmonella. In addition, five other restaurant employees reportedly experienced symptoms of Salmonella. Outbreak investigators concluded that an ill food worker employed by Seasons on the Pond restaurant was the most likely source of the outbreak.
Marler Clark represented a woman who became severely ill and was hospitalized with a Salmonella infection after eating at Seasons on the Pond. Her claim was resolved in early 2004.
