Lawfirm to act on behalf of Salmonella victim

A Minneapolis law firm is going to take legal action on behalf of the heirs of a woman, who died after sickened by salmonella bacteria. 

Shirley Mae Almer, 72, died December 21 in the Good Samaritan-Bethany nursing home. Per report, he consumed peanut butter contaminated by the same strain of salmonella bacteria that has sickened at least 425 people since mid-September, according to state health officials.

Another victim, Clifford Tousignant, 78, had basic health issues, which made it difficult to say whether salmonella was directly accountable for his demise Jan. 12.

Both the victims lived in nursing homes in Brainerd run by the Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society of Sioux Falls, S.D., an agency engaged in social service.

The lawfirm is planning to file a suit against the distributor and manufacturer of the product in the very near future.

The investigation is mainly paying attention on peanut butter distributed to food suppliers by the Ohio-based King Nut Company and by the Peanut Corp. of America, of Lynchburg, Va., which makes and distributes institutional brands.

Peanut Corp. was unwilling to comment on the issue.
