- Small Turtles Carry Salmonella
Most Arizona residents would assume that small turtles are seemingly harmless. However, recent reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have proven these assumptions wrong. Across the United States, small turtles have been spreading various strains of Salmonella infections.
Small turtle exposure has been linked to Salmonella outbreaks in 30 states. Arizona, which has recorded 5 infected persons thus far, is amongst the states that have seen outbreak strains of Salmonella Pomona, Salmonella Poona, and Salmonella Sandiego. As of today, a total of 168 people have been infected.
While no deaths have been reported, 34 of the 168 infected have been hospitalized. Connection between these small turtles and Salmonella has been in question in recent days. However, approximately 94 percent of ill persons have reported specific exposure to turtles prior to outbreak.
Turtles carry the Salmonella infection on their shell surface and outer skin, highlighting the importance of abstaining from touching them. Additional reptiles, as well as amphibians, can carry and spread Salmonella.
If you or a loved one has become infected with Salmonella, the Phoenix personal injury lawyers of Phillips Law Group are here to help. Simply submit you information to the right for a Free Case Review.

Liz was great
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
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!
Definitely recommend! Awesome
Phillips Law Group is a company that has taught me so many things. Here your work, your dedication, effort and discipline are valued, in addition to the fact that, as a woman, as an immigrant and as a human being, I have been given value and empowerment. We are a successful law firm because all workers feel part of a great family. I am very proud and honored to work at Phillips Law Group.
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
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.
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
