March 12, 2010 --
A second lawsuit has been filed in connection with an outbreak of shigella from food served in a west suburban sandwich shop. Barbara Romero claims she had to be hospitalized after eating toasted chicken and onion teriyaki sandwiches from the Subway restaurant in Lombard.
The DuPage County Health Department closed that Subway on March 4 following several reports of illness from customers.
Health officials confirm at least 21 cases of shigella poisoning are linked to food from that restaurant.
Seven of those people were hospitalized.
