Hi, my name is Fred Pritzker, founder and senior partner at the national law firm Pritzker Hageman. Our job, our passion, involves helping people harmed by dangerous foodborne pathogens.

This outbreak has been linked to food sold by a restaurant chain, Chicken & Rice Guys, that operates establishments and food trucks in the Boston area. Preliminary investigations show that 10 of the 14 people sickened in this outbreak were hospitalized.

According to published reports, the state department of health reported the outbreak occured sometime between March 27th and 30th [2017] at either the chain’s Allston restaurant or from one of its food trucks. At least 7 of the 14 cases were caused by infected food at the Allston location.

E. coli infections can cause serious harm and even death, especially in young children, elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems. Symptoms include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea that is often bloody and  vomiting. If there is fever, it is usually not very high.
