A Kansas woman is suing a San Diego-based produce distributor after she was hospitalized with Salmonella poisoning linked to tainted cucumbers. Heartland Health Monitor’s Bryan Thompson has details.
Monica Rios loves cucumbers. The Sedgwick County woman says she bought a Fat Boy brand cucumber at a Wal-Mart store in Wichita last August, washed it thoroughly, and ate it in a salad. Within a couple of days, she was hospitalized with abdominal cramping and pain she says she wouldn’t wish on her worst enemy.
