Salmonella Outbreak Prompts Mice Recall, Possible Product Liability Litigation

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on August 4, 2010

Public health officials are admonishing reptile owners to observe proper hand washing procedures after a massive recall of mice prompted by hundreds of cases of Salmonella. More than 400 people in Britain and the U.S. have become ill, most reptile owners and their children, from handling mice or living in the same home as a reptile owner. Investigators have traced the Salmonella source to a Georgia company called MiceDirect, which produces and ships rodents and other animals to owners of reptiles.

The recall involves millions of frozen mice, and MiceDirect has told buyers and investigators that they will irradiate future shipments to kill the infectious bacteria. While a story about a mice recall may seem humorous, there’s nothing funny about Salmonella bacteria. Exposure to these bacteria can cause vomiting, cramps, diarrhea and other potentially serious symptoms. Children and the elderly are especially vulnerable to becoming seriously ill when exposed to Salmonella. Any Florida reptile owners or those who live with them and become seriously ill from MiceDirect products may wish to contact Orlando product liability attorney James. O. Cunningham.
