Black Forest Bakery Salmonella Outbreak Lawsuits

In 2002, the Macomb County Health Department (MCHD) and Michigan Department of Agriculture (MDA) investigated a Salmonella Enteritidis outbreak associated with the Black Forest Cakes & Pastries shop in Macomb, Michigan. The Salmonella outbreak investigation led to the conclusion that cannolis and cassata cakes purchased from the bakery were the source of over 196 Salmonella cases. Forty-six people tested positive for Salmonella Enteritidis and 24 were hospitalized during the outbreak.

Marler Clark’s Salmonella attorneys represented over 30 people in Salmonella claims against the bakery. The law firm resolved all cases in early 2003.
