Veggie Booty Salmonella Bacteria Borne Poisoning Lawsuits

Veggie Booty Salmonella | Contamination Lawsuits Illness, Outbreak, Exposure | Bacteria, Contamination

Parker Waichman LLP is currently evaluating cases of Salmonella poisoning related to the June 28th Veggie Booty recall.  If you or a loved one has eaten Veggie Booty snack mix, contact the lawyers at Parker Waichman LLP to have your case evaluated for free.  Parker Waichman LLP intends to file claims against Robert’s American Gourmet Food, the Long Island, New York manufacturer of Veggie Bootie snack mix, in the coming weeks.

Veggie Booty Snack Mix Linked to Salmonella Outbreak in 17 States

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has linked Veggie Booty, a popular vegetarian snack to more than 50 cases of Salmonella poisoning in 17 states.  Public health officials have identified the strain of bacteria responsible for the outbreak as Salmonella Wadsworth.  This is a rare form that has not previously been linked to outbreaks in the United States.  While it is no more virulent than more common strains of Salmonella, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) did say that the unusual nature of this bacterium made it easier for health officials to link the reported incidents to Veggie Booty.  Cases of Salmonella have appeared in New York, California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Oregon, Tennessee, and Texas.  Because Veggie Booty is marketed to children, nearly all of the victims have been under the age of ten.

FDA Orders Veggie Booty Recall

On June 28, 2007, the FDA ordered a recall of all Veggie Booty snacks sold in the United States and Canada.  The FDA announcement said that all lots and sizes of the product were being recalled because it did not have enough information to limit the recall to particular lots.   Veggie Booty is sold in a plastic foil bag and comes in 1-ounce and 4-ounce sizes.   Roberts American Gourmet Food has advised consumers to destroy the product but keep the packaging in order to obtain a refund. 

Recall Expanded

On July 2, 2007, Robert’s American Gourmet Food expanded the Veggie Booty Recall to include all lots and sizes of Veggie Tings Crunch Corn Sticks Snack Foods sold throughout the United States and Canada.  The company said the recall was “precautionary” because Veggie Tings snacks are made with the same seasoning as Veggie Booty.  Veggie Tings come in 6-ounce foil bags and bear the Universal Product Code 15665-1036.  Robert’s American Gourmet Food is advising anyone who has Veggie Tings in their home to throw them away and contact the company for a refund.

Salmonella/Salmonellosis Symptoms

Salmonella poisoning is characterized by the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Diarrhea (sometimes bloody)
  • Abdominal Cramping
  • Vomiting and Nausea
  • Dehydration

Salmonella symptoms appear within 36 hours of exposure, and usually last four to seven days.  In very severe cases, Salmonella can lead to kidney failure and other complications.  Salmonella can be particularly dangerous for people with weakened immune systems, children and the elderly.  In people with weakened immune systems, Salmonella can enter the bloodstream from the intestines and cause life-threatening infections.  Individuals who have recently eaten Veggie Booty snacks and have experienced any of the above symptoms should contact a physician. 

Reiter’s Syndrome

Salmonella poisoning can lead to Reiter’s Syndrome, a difficult-to-treat reactive arthritis characterized by severe joint pain, irritation of the eyes and painful urination. The condition occurs after bacteria, in this case Salmonella, travels through the body to a joint or joints.  A victim of Reiter’s Syndrome may have already been treated for the initial infection, and it can be weeks before the symptoms of Reiter’s Syndrome become apparent.  Reiter’s Syndrome, which can plague its victims for months or years, is said to occur when reactive arthritis is evident and at least one other non-joint area, such as the eyes, skin or muscles, is affected.
