Veggie Booty Salmonella Outbreak Lawsuits

On June 28, 2007, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that Robert’s American Gourmet Food, Inc. of Sea Cliff, New York, was recalling Veggie Booty Snack Food for possible Salmonella contamination. The company recalled all lots and sizes of the Veggie Booty after health officials traced the product as the source of a Salmonella outbreak.

According to an FDA press release issued on June 29, 2007, 52 people in 17 states had become ill with Salmonella infections since March. On July 10, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a press release announcing that 60 illnesses in 19 states had been confirmed as Salmonella Wandsworth infection, and were related to consumption of Veggie Booty. CDC reported that 90 percent of cases were children aged 10 months to three years.

The potentially Salmonella-contaminated Veggie Booty was distributed nationwide and in Canada, and was sold in 4 oz., 1 oz., and ½ oz. flexible plastic foil packages. Veggie Booty is sold in supermarkets, health food stores, vending machines, online, and via phone order in both the U.S. and Canada.

The Salmonella attorneys at Marler Clark represented 25 victims in either filed lawsuits or other legal claims against Robert's American Gourmet. All Salmonella lawsuits and claims arising from the Veggie Booty Salmonella outbreak were resolved.
