Austin Woman Sues Over Tainted Eggs

Austin Woman Sues Over Tainted Eggs
San Antonio-Based Taco Cabana Named In Lawsuit

AUSTIN, Texas -- A lawsuit accuses two Iowa egg producers and San Antonio based Taco Cabana of causing an Austin woman's salmonella poisoning.

Houston lawyer Ron Simon filed the lawsuit Wednesday in Austin on behalf of Amanda Sanchez, accusing Wright County Egg, Hillandale Farms and Taco Cabana of negligence and deceptive trade practices.

Simon says his 34-year-old client ate eggs at a Taco Cabana in northwest Austin on June 26 and was hospitalized two days later for what tests revealed was salmonella poisoning.

The lawsuit says Sanchez remained hospitalized for four days and alleges Wright County Egg and Hillandale Farms, both owned by Quality Egg LLC, were the sources of the restaurant's eggs.

Both have recalled 550 million eggs because of possible salmonella contamination.

Simon and Sanchez are seeking unspecified actual and punitive damages. Quality Egg and Taco Cabana have not responded.
