After one person who ate at the restaurant on February 14 tested positive for a Campylobacter infection, the Grays Harbor County Environmental Health Division learned of at least 14 other illnesses reported among the restaurant’s Valentine’s Day diners. The Valentine’s Day menu served that evening was offered February 13th through February 21st.
July 21, 2020 Update: The likely number of cases linked to this outbreak has increased from 15 to 25, with multiple hospitalizations. Draper Valley Farms has been identified as the supplier of the chicken livers to Rediviva. Our Campylobacter attorneys are preparing lawsuits in this case.
Symptoms of a Campylobacter infection include stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, fever, headache, muscle aches, and diarrhea can be bloody. These symptoms usually develop within two to five days of exposure and last about a week.
After conducting an inspection on February 26 and finding multiple food safety violations, the health department closed the restaurant on February 27. Some of the critical violations include:
- Lack of knowledge about foodborne illness prevention
- A food worker using bare hands to handle a ready-to-eat food item
- Staff was unable to readily locate a food thermometer
