Attorney Ryan Osterholm is representing a man who was diagnosed with Salmonella poisoning after eating at Duffy’s Bar and Grill (Duffy’s) in Osseo, Minnesota. Ryan’s client is one of 5 people whose Salmonella Enteritidis infections may be associated with Duffy’s, according to the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), which is investigating the outbreak.
“When several people are diagnosed with Salmonella after eating at the same restaurant, that is evidence that the source of the outbreak is food served at that restaurant,” says Ryan, who practice primarily in the area of food poisoning litigation.
The age range of the 5 people sickened in the outbreak is from 28 to 80 years old. Two people were hospitalized. The most recent meal date for the outbreak victims was February 26, 2017.
According to MDH, interventions were put into place at the facility, and there is no evidence of ongoing transmission.

Our Salmonella lawyers helps people sickened at restaurants get compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain, emotional suffering, and other damages.
Our law firm has won money for clients in cases where the food that caused the illnesses was contaminated before it was sold to the restaurant. In cases like this, there may be claims against several companies, including the owner of the restaurant, a grower, food processor, distributor and others. This depends on the results of traceback investigations done to determine exactly where the contamination occurred.
We have also won money for clients in cases where the specific food item that caused the illnesses was never determined. This happens quite frequently.
