Salmonella poisoning alleged at local restaurant

Two Bentonville families are considering legal action against a restaurant here after alleged cases of salmonella poisoning occurred within the last week.

Seattle, Washington-based attorney Drew Falkenstein with Marler Clark said two families have contacted him this week to consider filing a lawsuit against Sushi King. A doctor alerted the Arkansas Department of Health of a possible salmonella outbreak Monday, according to environmental health specialist John Wham. Cultures obtained from the doctor were later confirmed to be salmonella.

Inspectors have returned to Sushi King nearly every day this week, Wham said Friday. He expects the lab results to be back by Wednesday.
