Golden Corral Salmonella Outbreak LitigationIn the summer of 2003, 23 patrons of the Golden Corral, a buffet-style restaurant chain, reported Salmonella berta infections to the Georgia Division of Public Health. All had recently eaten at the Golden Corral in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Salmonella illness was not statistically associated with any food item or combination of foods; but an environmental investigation revealed a broken food-dicer that had the potential to contaminate freshly diced foods. Cultures were done from food-handlers, food, and the restaurant environment, and Salmonella berta was found in a restaurant floor drain.
Marler Clark's Salmonella lawyers represented 9 individuals who fell ill after consuming contaminated food at the restaurant in claims.
More about the Golden Corral Salmonella outbreak can be found on the Marler Clark-sponsored site about Salmonella.
