Posted in Wrongful Death at 6:44 pm by kevin

A nationwide salmonella outbreak in peanut butter products is responsible for killing two elderly patients in Minnesota according to a lawsuit that has been filed. The lawsuit filed by a Minnesota law firm states that nursing home patients Shirley Mae Almer and Clifford Tousignant both died because of salmonella poisoning.

The two resided in two separate Good Samaritan nursing homes in Minnesota. The wrongful death lawsuit is being filed against King Nut of Ohio and Peanut Corporation of America in Lynchburg, Virginia. Several companies including Kellogg and Keebler have recalled products using the peanut products.
