About 200 Catch Food Poisoning after Dining at Vegas Hot Spot

The latest report out of Las Vegas is that over 200 people who dined at the restaurant Firefly were sickened with food poisoning in late April.

To date, the exact cause of the outbreak has not been identified, but previous salmonella lawsuits in which a person endures sickness for multiple days but then fully recovers have fetched between $5,000 and $10,000, the Washington Post reported. That number can increase if the person is admitted into a hospital, misses work, or has lasting complications connected to the illness. A key component in any salmonella case is determining whether the restaurant’s actions caused the outbreak, a lawyer told the Post.

According to the Washington Post, the Southern Nevada Health District released an updated report last Friday, revealing that people from 20 different states and two foreign countries were sick. The restaurant, one of the highest rated in Las Vegas, has been closed since April 26, after health officials received reports of gastrointestinal illness from eight different groups of people who ate at Firefly between April 21 and 24. The restaurant was served with 44 demerits for actions such as storing food at improper temperatures and employees handling food without gloves, the Washington Post reported.

One Las Vegas couple has already filed a lawsuit against Firefly, and at least 75 other people have contacted one law firm in the hope of being included in the lawsuit, a lawyer told the Washington Post, which noted that the number is likely to grow.
