CORTLAND, N.Y., Nov. 7, 2019 / PRNewswire / – The Lange Law Firm is investigating a Campylobacter outbreak linked to Wild Ginger. So far, 8 people have confirmed Campylobacteriosis after eating at Wild Ginger Asian Fusion on Main Street between October 18th and October 31st. It is likely more cases may become linked to the outbreak.
"Campylobacteriosis is one of the most common types of food poisoning. Campylobacter infections are serious. They can cause long-term complications, such as reactive arthritis and Guillian Barré Syndrome," says Jory Lange, a Campylobacter lawyer.
Campylobacteriosis is one of the most common diarrheal diseases in the U.S. affecting about 1.3 million people each year. Once Campylobacter bacteria has entered the body, it begins to attack and infect the lining of both small and large intestines and can also spread to and affect other parts of the body.
Guillian Barré Syndrome is a serious autoimmune disorder that attacks one's nerves.
Reactive arthritis is a painful inflammatory arthritis that affects the joints, heels, toes, fingers, and knees. Both can be caused by a Campylobacter infection.
What Caused the Wild Ginger Campylobacter Outbreak?
Undercooked poultry is the most common cause of Campylobacter infections. Campylobacter can also spread when undercooked poultry comes into contact with other foods.
