Marler Clark, the Seattle law firm nationally known for food safety advocacy and for the successful representation of victims of foodborne illness, has been contacted by victims of a Salmonella outbreak that health officials have traced to Corky and Lenny’s Restaurant in Woodmere.

The Cuyahoga County Board of Health has traced 12 confirmed and 41 probable cases of Salmonellosis to the restaurant.

"Restaurant owners who fail to ensure that the food they serve is safely prepared need to be held responsible for making their customers ill," Marler continued. "Salmonella is not a pretty illness. Victims suffer intense abdominal cramping, bloody diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. In a typical outbreak, several people have to be hospitalized."
