An Oregon husband and wife who were sickened with Salmonella Virchow infections after eating at a Mexican restaurant in Washington state are suing the eatery, which has now been linked to 94 illnesses.
Daniel and Allison Maynard of Happy Valley, Oregon, filed suit against On the Border restaurant Tuesday. The couple ate at the Vancouver, WA establishment on September 27, according to the complaint.
