November 11, 2021 — Another lawsuit has been filed in Texas after an outbreak of Salmonella linked to onions from Mexico sickened more than 800 people.
The newest lawsuit was filed in Tarrant County, Texas on behalf of Lisa R. and Jose G., a couple who were infected with Salmonella Oranienburg after eating food containing contaminated onions.
After eating the onions, they both experienced symptoms like vomiting, abdominal cramps, nausea, diarrhea and dehydration. Lisa required “extensive hospitalization,” and both are still recovering.
The lawsuit was filed against ProSource and Keeler Family Farms, the two companies responsible for importing the onions from Mexico.
The onions were sold at grocery stores throughout the U.S., including popular stores in Texas like Winco Foods, Walmart, and numerous local restaurants.
As of October 29, the onions have been linked to 808 illnesses, with about one-quarter of the victims located in Texas, according to the outbreak investigation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
