- 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.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Sophia H is very helpful.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
