Salmonella

Salmonella is the most widely-reported food borne illness in the United States. This bacterium is spread through contaminated food or unsanitary kitchen environments. The most common foods people receive salmonella from include undercooked or raw meat, poultry, fruits and vegetables rinsed in infected water, undercooked eggs, and peanut butter. An early diagnosis of salmonella can dramatically reduce the complications associated with this condition, but if not treated promptly, salmonella can prove fatal.

If you or someone you love has suffered from salmonella poisoning, it is important to consult with an experienced Lake Geneva personal injury attorney. Contact the skilled attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today at 800-242-2874.
