Pritzker Hageman’s food safety legal team has been retained in the fourth Salmonella Enteritidis outbreak linked to the Great Moon Buffet in West Saint Paul.
Raymond Trueblood-Konz and our team of Salmonella lawyers are representing a man who contracted a debilitating and painful Salmonella infection after eating at the Great Moon Buffet in November 2021. Prior to our client’s illness, there had been three previous outbreaks linked to the Great Moon Buffet in 2018, 2019, and the summer of 2021.
4 Salmonella Outbreaks in 3 Years Show Blatant Disregard for Public Health
Despite repeated warnings from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), there have now been four Salmonella outbreaks at the Great Moon Buffet since 2018. The fourth outbreak occurred just months after the third.
During an investigation of the fourth outbreak, inspectors identified food safety violations so egregious that health officials referred to the restaurant as one of the “worst offenders” in Minnesota.
Four outbreaks in three years―two within months of each other―suggest a frightening disregard for consumer safety. It shouldn’t take repeated government intervention to ensure kitchen operations are safe and sanitary.Attorney Raymond Trueblood
