Latherow Law Office Filed Suit In Salmonella Poisoning Case That Hospitalized Child
Date:2/26/2009

CHICAGO, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- A lawsuit was filed today by Latherow Law Office on behalf of a 10 year-old boy who contracted salmonella poisoning after eating at a Blueberry Hill Restaurant in LaGrange, Illinois, on October 5, 2008. The child was hospitalized for three days as a result of the poisoning. Blueberry Hill was cited by the Cook County Department of Health after the Communicable Disease Unit identified 13 individuals who also contracted salmonella poisoning after eating one or more times at the restaurant between October 5 and 11, 2008. The Department concluded that improper food handling likely promoted the transmission of salmonella poisoning to its patrons.

    "It's a shame that a local family restaurant would completely disregard
    the minimum standards for food safety," said the boy's attorney, Bridget
    Duignan. "Hopefully Congress will take a hard look at the recently
    introduced Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009 (H.R. 875), so that we
    may gain trust in the food industry and confidently take our families out
    to eat."

The lawsuit filed on behalf of the 10 year-old boy, through his mother, Maria Arreaga, and by their attorneys, Jerry A. Latherow and Bridget Duignan of Chicago, alleges that Blueberry Hill not only failed to properly handle the food in the kitchen, but failed to properly keep a clean and sanitized food preparation line and keep food at the correct temperature.

The lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County. Unspecified damages are being sought.
