Harry Wiseman of Elko, Nevada is suing Jacobs Entertainment claiming that he was infected with salmonella after eating at Gold Dust West.  At lest 17 others are known to have contracted Salmonella following anoutbreak in Nevada over the last three weeks.  The State Health Department has since confirmed the outbreak. 

Wiseman is seeking unspecified damages in excess of $75,000 in the suit filed March 19 in the U.S. District Court in Reno.

Wiseman, who was hospitalized for nine days, says he became severely ill with nausea and diarrhea thd day after he ate ham and eggs at The Grille restaurant in the casino on March 2.

"The investigation is ongoing, but the health department requested the removal of eggs from the menu and is investigating the suppliers and purveyors of food products to Gold Dust West," the suit said.

The suit accuses Jacobs Entertainment of negligence, product liability and breach of warranty, alleging the company failed to properly train and supervise employees regarding the prevention of the transmission of salmonella.

Jacobs Entertainment, which also owns the Sands Regency Hotel Casino in Reno, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press.

Jonathan Boulware, vice president of Nevada operations for Jacobs Entertainment in Golden, Col, told the Elko newspaper the company was not aware of the lawsuit.

"From the beginning we have been cooperating fully with the health department to identify the possible products and causes," he said. "The health department's preliminary investigation did not yield any causes of outbreak related to Gold Dust West's handling of food."

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says salmonella is prevalent in raw poultry and meat. Most people recover from salmonella infections without treatment, health officials say. If exposed to the bacteria, people typically get diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever in the first 12 to 72 hours. The symptoms can last up to a week.
