January 17, 2007: Food Poisoning Lawsuit. Arby’s Sued in Salmonella Food Poisoning Outbreak in Valdosta, Georgia

Arby’s Food Poisoning Lawsuit Update – Attorneys Eric Weinberg of New Brunswick, New Jersey and C. Andrew Childers, of Atlanta, Georgia, filed the first food poisoning lawsuit today against Arby’s restaurant on behalf of a woman who was sickened after eating at the fast food chain known for its roast beef sandwiches. Weinberg and Childers are preparing about a dozen additional food poisoning lawsuits to be filed in the immediate future.

According to the attorneys, their clients experienced severe gastrointestinal injuries after eating at an Arby’s located in Valdosta, Georgia. Medical tests showed that each of the them had been infected by Salmonella.

The Division of Public Health of the Georgia Department of Human Resources has identified a total of 72 individuals, all of whom were affected by the same strain of Salmonella serotype Montevideo. The outbreak appears to have lasted from August 21, 2006, through November 16, 2006.

The Division of Public Health also noted that a meat slicer and a sample of roast beef from the Arby’s restaurant tested positive for Samonella.

“The slicer was in place until October 24, “Mr. Childers said, “Arby’s continued using the contaminated slicer for two months with people getting infected the whole time, and they never even warned people that they may get sick from eating at the restaurant.”

Seventy of the 72 individuals identified by the Georgia Health Department in the outbreak are Georgia residents. A number of these individuals contacted Mr. Weinberg regarding a potential food poisoning lawsuit through his website,

“I’m pleased that we can help people who have been the victims of a food poisoning outbreak,” Mr. Weinberg said. “That’s why we created the website and why we are trying to reach as many people who have been affected as possible.”
