Marler Clark, the Seattle foodborne illness law firm, and Martinez & Potter, a respected Los Angeles law firm, have filed a lawsuit on behalf of seven people who became ill with salmonella infections after eating Paramount Farms raw almonds.

Paramount Farms recalled roughly eighteen million pounds of almonds after the CDC traced the salmonella illnesses of 29 people in twelve states and Canada to consumption of Paramount’s raw almonds between September 2003 and May 2004.

The plaintiffs are residents of California, Washington, and Arizona. Marler Clark previously filed Salmonella lawsuits against Paramount Farms on behalf of a Kennewick, Washington family and a Renton, Washington, man who suffered from reactive arthritis, a complication of salmonella infection.
