December 12, 2006: Taco Bell Food Poisoning Lawsuit Help – Green Onions Test Negative in Taco Bell E. coli Outbreak

Taco Bell Food Poisoning Lawsuit Help – Tests carried out by the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition did not confirm that green onions were to blame for the recent E. coli outbreak at Taco Bell restaurants in several states. The chain had already removed green onions, also known as scallions, from all 5,800 of its restaurants around the country. The Chief Medical Officer at the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, Dr. David Acheson, said that the FDA has not “ruled out any food items, including green onions.”

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there have been 64 reported cases of E. coli infection in all: 28 cases in New Jersey, 22 in New York, 11 in Pennsylvania, 2 in Delaware, and 1 in South Carolina. The CDC noted that the South Carolina resident had eaten at a Taco Bell in Pennsylvania.

A majority of the individuals who suffered from food poisoning during this outbreak were hospitalized (82% according to the CDC). Of those, 13% developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which threatens the kidneys.

If you think that you are experiencing symptoms related to E. coli infection, you should contact your health care provider or visit your local hospital emergency room.
