LAS VEGAS, Nevada (May 23, 2013) – According to an article in The Las Vegas Sun this morning, the toll of food poisoning victims at Firefly Tapas Kitchen and Bar has now reached 294 people. According to health officials, chorizo sausage from the restaurant was tested positive for salmonella. It is uncertain if Firefly staff was negligent in the preparation of the chorizo or if the chorizo was contaminated before it arrived at Firefly.
“Whether the chorizo was contaminated with Salmonella before it arrived at Firefly is not entirely the issue, since sausage, when cooked at proper temperatures, will be rid of deadly bacteria such as salmonella,” states West Seegmiller, owner of The Seegmiller Law Firm in Las Vegas.
Some food scientists state this is the biggest outbreak of food poisoning from a restaurant they have ever seen, especially since a total of eight different groups called the Nevada Health District after just one night of eating at Firefly.
