- 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.

Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
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’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
