What’s the Deal With LA Poisonings?


Attorney Michael Ehline Injury LawyerFood poisoning and mass illness is nothing to sneeze at, as it remains one of the largest causes of disease in the United States. Los Angeles is not immune from large-scale poisonings, home to some of the worst outbreaks in the United States. Below we’ve listed some of the most famous cases for your review.

NBC Los Angeles has a nifty map of updated instances of food poisoning. These include several recent cases of food poisoning. Furthermore, in 2013, an outbreak of Norovirus sickened 13 at the Chado Tea Room in LA. In another, Norovirus sickened 30 at the Sierra LaVerne Country Club. In 2014, Norovirus sickened 24 at Francesco’s restaurant at Palos Verdes. Additionally, in 2013, Campylobacter sickened 21 people at the Croatian-American Club in San Pedro.

These are just several of the significant cases over the last five years. The New York Times reported on a substantial case in 1982. In this one, over 100 people developed food poisoning at a high school football game. The 126 victims often complained of headaches, dizziness, and vomiting. A possible source of the poisoning includes copper sulfate from soft drink dispensers.

It’s not all people, either. In 2007, the LA Times reported on a case of severe poisoning affecting animals. In this case, a bloom of toxic algae off the city’s harbor caused panic for animal rehab centers and hospitals. It was so large that many of the marine animals could not receive immediate care. There were some significant poisoning for animals, left convulsing due to the toxin in the algae pseudo-nitzschia that affected dolphins, sea lions, pelicans, and even more.
