Sumary of Italian Meats are Linked to a Salmonella Outbreak that has Already Hospitalized a Dozen:
- ” The real number of victims, says national food poisoning lawyer Ron Simon, interviewed for this story, is likely closer to ten times that, or more.
- Simon stated “these victims are the ones who were sick enough to present to a hospital even with COVID protocols, and to be lucky enough to be tested.
- While lunch meats are often the source of listeria, according to Ron Simon, they can also carry salmonella and other bacteria, such as E.
- Since these meats are often eaten as-is (not cooked by the consumer), once they are infected they can carry the potentially deadly pathogens directly to the human body.
- According to Ron Simon, if a stool test is done and it is positive for salmonella, the stool sample is sent to the state health lab for serotyping.
