Lawsuit filed for Taste of Chicago salmonella food poisoning

Two people who came down with salmonella food poisoning after eating hummus from Pars Cove restaurant at the Taste of Chicago have recently filed a personal injury lawsuit. The lawsuit alleges that the Lakeview restaurant failed to properly inspect, store, package, or otherwise prepare the food in a manner that caused them to get sick. One of the two named plaintiffs claims that she became sick the day after she went to the Taste. She began to believe that her symptoms were not merely flu related when vomiting, diarrhea, and fever grew worse over the course of another three days. When her family doctor sent her to the hospital, her illness was confirmed as salmonella food poisoning. The woman is currently taking antibiotics to fight the salmonella, but she has not yet been able to work over the last two weeks.
