Cafe Santa Fe Salmonella Outbreak Litigation

Cafe Santa Fe voluntarily closed on Sunday, May 1, 2005, for inspection, cleaning, and re-training of employees to ensure compliance with health department regulations after the restaurant's food was identified as the source of a Salmonella outbreak.

On May 12, 2005, Marler Clark filed a Salmonella lawsuit against Café Santa Fe, a South Little Rock, Arkansas restaurant located near Interstate 30. The suit, which was filed on behalf of a Benton, Arkansas woman, sought compensation for injuries that the woman suffered during a Salmonella outbreak at Café Santa Fe that left nine people with confirmed illnesses.

Café Santa Fe remained closed for most of May 2005. The health department’s investigation revealed an exposure period in late April lasting more than a week. Dozens of illnesses were reported to the health department, and Marler Clark amended the original lawsuit to include three other victims of the Salmonella outbreak on June 9, 2005. The claims were resolved in early 2006.
