Hy-Vee Pasta Salad Salmonella Outbreak Lawsuits

At this time, Salmonella lawyers at Marler Clark have represented five of the victims in this outbreak, achieving settlements covering medical expenses, wage loss, and pain and suffering. All of these cases have been successfully settled.

On August 14th, 2018, Marler Clark filed a lawsuit against HyVee, Inc. on behalf of Margaret Reiner, Tyler Rogers, and Kami Rogers who were all infected with Salmonella after eating Hy-Vee Pasta Salad. The three plaintiffs are represented by Marler Clark, the food safety law firm, and Jardine, Logan, and O’Brien, a well-respected local firm. Case No. 0:18-cv-02379.

“Hy-Vee has always been a leader in food safety,” said Bill Marler, managing partner at Marler Clark. “We hope through the lawsuit to understand how this event happened and the do what we can to make sure something like this never happens again, added Marler.

On July 5, 2018, Ms. Reiner’s daughter, Kami Rogers, purchased pasta salad from a Hy-Vee store located at 1475 W. Service Drive, Winona, Minnesota. Ms. Reiner consumed the product the same day. Six days later, she began experiencing symptoms of diarrhea, body aches, and headaches. On July 19, her symptoms became so severe that she sought medical attention at Olmsted Medical Center where she tested positive for Salmonella

Tyler Rogers consumed the same Hy-Vee Pasta Salad that his grandmother, Ms. Reiner, ate. He began experiencing symptoms on July 11, forcing him to miss three days of work.

Kami Rogers consumed the Hy-Vee Pasta Salad on July 5th, 6th, and 7th.  She began experiencing symptoms on July 8th and four days later sought medical attention. Ms. Rogers consulted with her physicians regarding her symptoms through August 1, during which time she tested positive for Salmonella.

On July 17, the CDC announced a recall of Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salad for possible Salmonella contamination. There were 79 cases across 9 states. 18 people were hospitalized.
