Cory Watson Files Suit on Behalf of Mother Sickened by Goldfish®

On August 8, Cory Watson Attorneys, in association with their Mississippi Co-counsel, Schwartz & Associates, P.A., filed suit on behalf of a Mississippi mother who is believed to be the first case of Salmonella poisoning associated with the Pepperidge Farm Goldfish recall.

The salmonella victim, 26-year-old Bailey Finch of Columbus, Miss., said that when she ate Goldfish Flavor Blasted® Extra Cheddar on July 19, she had no idea that the snack food might be contaminated. Pepperidge Farm later recalled the lot she had purchased, but it was too late to prevent a dangerous bout with salmonella poisoning.

After suffering severe stomach problems, Ms. Finch was initially taken to DCH Hospital in Tuscaloosa, Ala., then transferred by ambulance to UAB Hospital in Birmingham, Ala., where she underwent four days of treatment for severe complications caused by the salmonella.
