    Deadly salmonella outbreak strikes wedding reception

    By David Brown on November 11, 2014

    One guest died and 25 others were ill after a salmonella outbreak struck a wedding reception in Prestwich in August 2010. The reception, catered by Shefa Mehadrin and their suppliers Duerden Brothers, was celebrating the marriage of Stephen Wicks and Hennifer Harris, held at the Hilton Suite in Bury New Road.

    Guests Rene Kwartz, 82, was taken to hospital a fortnight after the celebration and later died of the deadly salmonella poisoning. Amongst those affected were Colin Thornton and his wife Rozanne, both in their 50s. Mr Thornton commented, “You expect to go to a wedding reception and have a nice meal, you don’t expect this to happen to anybody.”

    The deadly salmonella outbreak was traced to beansprouts which were served raw as part of a salmon teriyaki dish. It is usually recommended that beansprouts are cooked to kill any bacteria. Those affected received compensation settlements ranging from £1,000 to £5,000, but some guests, including Rozanne Thornton, are still waiting.

    Salmonella poisoning can be deadly, as the above story shows. Whilst symptoms generally subside within 24 to 48 hours, for children and the elderly, food poisoning can be more dangerous, even fatal.

    Have you suffered from food poisoning?

    So you’ve come home from a meal out, or woken up the morning after a delicious takeaway meal feeling less than great – in fact, you feel sick, with vomiting and diarrhoea following shortly after. Have you contracted food poisoning? Here are some of the symptoms you can expect if you’ve suffered from food poisoning:

    • Nausea
    • Stomach pain
    • Vomiting
    • Diarrhoea
    • Fever
    • Headaches

    These symptoms usually take between 24-72 hours to manifest, but in some cases they can appear a week or more after infection. You’ll normally start to feel better within 24 to 48 hours, but if symptoms persist, yon may need to see your GP.
