Ron Simon, a national food poisoning lawyer headquartered in Texas, has experience working with Shigella victims, having spent years representing thousands of food poisoning victims. According to Simon, schools, hospitals and prisons are among the most common locations for outbreaks of these potentially deadly pathogens. And now, Hoffman Elementary School is at the center of a Shigella outbreak – the Principle of Hoffman Elementary School sent a letter home to parents warning them that several confirmed cases of Shigella had been identified amongst the 2 to 4 year olds registered in a special program at the school in recent weeks.
Shigellosis affects about 14,000 people each year, and causes diarrhea, stomach cramping, body aches, and can lead to dehydration. The young, as in this outbreak, are especially susceptible to Shigellosis poisoning.
