- Salmonella Illnesses Tied to Winery Events
Numerous guests became ill after attending two catered events at a winery in Florence, Arizona, this March, according to a recent article from Phoenix New Times.
The newspaper wrote that the illnesses were thought to be from Salmonella poisoning and had been tied to a wedding and another event held at The Windmill Winery in Florence.
In a written statement, the Pinal County Public Health Services District (PCPHSD) said: The PCPHSD was alerted to the outbreak after they received a call from a participant of the wedding who reported that several attendees were sick and at least 4 were hospitalized.
The health department also noted that when it received the call, it began investigating food practices at the Windmill Winery and learned that the facility had used a non-permitted caterer.
The Phoenix New Times elaborated on the departments statement by reporting that 38 suspected cases of Salmonella poisoning had been tied to the events at the winery.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a government health agency, estimates that about 1.2 million people are sickened by Salmonella in the U.S. each year.
Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps between 12 and 72 hours after infection, the CDC says online, adding that the illness can last up to seven days and can spread from the intestines to other parts of the body.

Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
