CL Swanson Salmonella Outbreak Litigation
Twelve Rochelle Foods workers submitted stool samples that tested positive for Salmonella
during the three-week period between April 5 and April 22, 2005. Two of these twelve individuals worked in the plant cafeteria, managed and operated by C.L. Swanson Corporation. The Ogle County Health Department reported that four other people became ill with symptoms of a Salmonella
infection during the outbreak, but did not submit stool samples for testing. The only common exposure between all ill people was consumption of food at the Rochelle Foods cafeteria before symptom onset.
