Red Onion Salmonella Outbreak

Red Onion Salmonella Outbreak Sickens 90 in Utah, DKOW’s Salt Lake City Lawyers Are Here to Help

Salt Lake City’s premier plaintiff’s trial law firm, DKOW, has teamed up with The Lange Law Firm’s National Salmonella Lawyer to help Utahn’s injured in the Red Onion Salmonella Outbreak.  The Salmonella Onion Outbreak has sickened 90 people in Utah.  Nationally 640 people have been infected with Salmonella from onions.  85 people have been hospitalized.  People from all across the United States and Canada have called our Salmonella Lawyer about the Onion outbreak.

Utah Red Onion Salmonella Outbreak Will Continue to Grow

At least 90 people in Utah have contracted Salmonella from red onions. Salmonella Lawyer Jory Lange says, "This is already the biggest Salmonella outbreak of 2020.  It is likely to continue to grow.  Thompson International recalled its contaminated onions just last Friday.  Many people still have these recalled onions in their homes.  There's a real risk that people who have not yet heard of the onion recall may be eating onions that are tainted with Salmonella."  You can learn more about the Utah onion Salmonella outbreak here.

DKOW’s Colin King recommends that, "People should check their onions.  If they see any of these brands, they should throw their onions out:  Utah Onions, Thompson International, Thompson Premium, Kroger, Food Lion, Onions 52, Hartley's Best, Imperial Fresh, Majestic, Tender Loving Care, and El Competidor.  It's just not worth the risk."
