SEATTLE, WA —The owners of Pars Cove Persian Cuisine were named as the defendant in two more lawsuits filed today in Cook County Circuit Court in Chicago. The lawsuits were filed on behalf of three plaintiffs all of whom became ill with Salmonella infections days after eating at the Pars Cove booth at the Taste of Chicago festival. All plaintiffs are represented by Marler Clark LLP, a Seattle-based law firm, and the Chicago injury firm Newland, Newland, and Newland.

Plaintiffs in the lawsuits are:

  • Chicago Heights residents Dick and Christine Dean. Both Dick and Christine fell ill with Salmonella Heidelberg infections on July 6, two days after eating hummus shirazi at the Pars Cove booth at the Taste of Chicago festival. On July 12, after hearing reports of an outbreak through media reports, Mr. Dean went to the emergency room for treatment. He was admitted to the hospital, where he remained through July 17. While he was hospitalized, Mr. Dean submitted a stool sample that cultured positive for Salmonella Heidelberg. Both Dick and Christine missed considerable time from work while they were ill.
