Susie Cantaloupe Salmonella Lawsuit

Marler Clark represented an 85-year-old Washington resident who was hospitalized for 18 days with a Salmonella infection after eating Susie brand cantaloupe in 2002. The cantaloupe, which had been imported and distributed in the United States and Canada by the I. Kunik Company of McAllen, Texas, was recalled for Salmonella contamination, but public health investigators identified 58 cases of Salmonella Poona associated with the consumption of Susie brand cantaloupe before the outbreak was over.  Salmonella cases associated with the outbreak were found in Arkansas, British Columbia, California, Colorado, Manitoba, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, Ontario, Oregon, Saskatchewan, Texas, Vermont, and Washington.
