How Do I Know If My Child Has a Salmonella Infection from this Outbreak?

Only a doctor can make a diagnosis of Salmonella infection. If your child has eaten at Elite Childcare Academy and have become sick, urgent medical attention is highly recommended. Also, early medical treatment can greatly reduce the risk for long-term complications.

It is best not to panic, but it is a good idea to monitor your child’s health and symptoms in the days after eating at Elite Childcare Academy.

The Outbreak

The outbreak numbers and statistics are currently unknown. This is likely because we are still within the incubation period for Salmonella illness. According to DCHD’s representative, Phil Rooney, the lack of information is likely because the center’s children may still not yet be showing the symptoms of Salmonella.

Thus far, fortunately, it appears that no one has died.

Even if your child is not sick, it is a good idea to monitor your symptoms for the time being. It is also a good idea though to hang onto your receipt, just in case you do develop symptoms of a Salmonella illness.

"Candess & Jory were extremely valuable resources for me when I contracted food poisoning. They guided me through every step of the legal process from start to finish, always willing to answer questions and be fully transparent. They were able to secure a settlement for me, but what I valued more was how truly concerned they were about my health and well-being beyond my case. I would gladly recommend Candess & Jory to anyone looking for attorneys who will fight on their behalf and really care about their clients."


"I cannot recommend Jory Lange highly enough. When my father died, Jory was there and got an unbelievably great settlement (one of the highest settlements in America for for this type of case). I say this not only as a grateful client, but as a trial lawyer myself concentrating in personal injury with over 25 years experience. Jory has the knowledge, the skills, and the ability to handle big personal injury cases and my family and I are exceedingly pleased with the results and the justice that he obtained through very hard work for us. "
