Amarillo Environmental Health officials have traced a salmonella outbreak to the Tacos Garcia restaurant located at 1100 Ross Street. At least twelve patrons who ate together at the restaurant on January 4 became ill with salmonella poisoning. Four members of the group submitted stool samples that tested positive for the bacteria, and all members were epidemiologically linked to the outbreak.
Resources for victims of salmonella outbreaks are available on the Web, with sponsored sites on salmonella and salmonella litigation provided by Marler Clark, the Seattle law firm nationally recognized for its successful representation of victims of foodborne illness. The firm sponsors a website specifically about salmonella — its symptoms, risks of infection, treatment, and news about outbreaks, as well as a site about salmonella litigation.
