In early 2002, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) joined the Texas Department of health (TDH), the City of Dallas Department of Environmental Health Services, and Dallas County Health and Human Services Department in a Salmonella outbreak investigation, and identified 650 people who had become ill with Salmonella infections after attending conferences and conventions held at the Wyndham Anatole Hotel in Dallas.
Health department investigators concluded that a hotel food-service worker who had a Salmonella infection contaminated food during the preparation process. According to TDH, “the food most commonly consumed by those who tested positive for salmonellosis was salsa, which was made in the hotel.”
Marler Clark's Salmonella lawyers represented 19 victims of the Salmonella outbreak in claims against the Wyndham Anatole Hotel. Their claims were resolved in 2003.
