Ron Simon filed a wrongful death lawsuit in San Diego, CA stemming from the Salmonella-contaminated cucumbers that have sickened many hundreds and caused the death of at least two – one a resident of San Diego and the other a resident of Texas. The Andrew & Williamson cucumbers were imported from the Baja region of Mexico and distributed widely to many grocery stores and restaurants. Victims have been identified in 30 states. The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. Southern District Court of California in San Diego, where the decedent Mildred Hendricks resided and where Andrew & Williamson is headquartered.
According to the petition, Mildred Hendricks ate the Salmonella-contaminated cucumbers in August 2015 and shortly thereafter began to suffer the symptoms of salmonellosis. She was admitted to a local hospital on August 14th, but despite aggressive treatment, passed away on August 17th. Hospital stool cultures were positive for Salmonella Poona, the outbreak strain linked Andrew & Williamson’s Limited Edition cucumbers.
