SAN ANTONIO, Sept. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A lawsuit was filed last night against Pasha Mediterranean Grill, LLC on behalf of nine individuals sickened in the Salmonella outbreak. All nine individuals ate at the Pasha Mediterranean Grill located on Wurzbach Road in San Antonio. The nine plaintiffs are represented by Marler Clark, the nation's leading food safety law firm, and Hill Law Firm, a respected San Antonio firm.
The nine plaintiffs, ranging from 13 to 49 years of age, consumed food at Pasha Mediterranean Grill on August 31, 2018. Three days later, they all began experiencing symptoms including severe diarrhea, nausea, fatigue, and fever. Each individual sought medical attention for Salmonella, with treatment ranging from ER visits, antibiotics to hospitalization. To date, they are all still experiencing symptoms.
On September 6, 2018, the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District announced an investigation into a potential foodborne illness cluster of as many as 300 people at Pasha's Mediterranean Grill. To date, there are 14 confirmed Salmonella cases with 12 hospitalizations. The investigation is still ongoing.
