O'Steen & Harrison Files Lawsuit on Behalf of Arizonans Sickened by Cucumber Salmonella Outbreak
Phoenix, Arizona—Today, we filed a lawsuit against Andrew and Williamson Sales, Co. on behalf of two Arizonans who fell ill after eating cucumbers contaminated by Salmonella. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona, is captioned Walker v. Andrew and Williamson Sales, Co. (2:15-cv-01805-SRB). We are working will Bill Marler of Marler Clark, L.L.P., P.S. on these cases.
The lawsuit was brought on behalf of an adult and a child who allege injuries from the contaminated cucumbers. The outbreak is linked to cucumbers grown at Rancho Don Juanito in Mexico and distributed by Andrew & Williamson, a food company based out of San Diego, California.
Public health officials have tied more than 300 illnesses from 27 states to these cucumbers. The state hardest hit by the outbreak is Arizona, with 60 reported cases. California and Utah have reported 51 and 30 illnesses, respectively.
