Re: “Foodborne Fuss: The Boise Co-op Looks Ahead Following Salmonella Outbreak

On or about Wednesday, June 10, Mrs. Jessup arose from bed in the early morning hours and informed her mother she needed to be taken to the hospital. She was concerned about her well being, as well as that of her unborn child. She was transferred from the emergency department to the maternal ward, where she went through triage and received intravenous fluids for rehydration. She was discharged and advised to take Imodium for the diarrhea and Tylenol for the fever.

After returning to her parent’s home, Jessup’s symptoms worsened. Her fever rose to 102 degrees, and diarrhea continued despite medication. She had also begun having contractions, which lasted for a couple of days, and was becoming more and more distressed over the welfare of her baby. She returned to the hospital on Thursday, June 11, where this time, she was admitted and remained until Saturday, when her symptoms began to subside.

During Jessup’s hospitalization, she submitted a stool sample that tested positive for Salmonella. At a medical visit on June 26, during a check-up, she was cleared to travel, but her illness causes continued concerns about her pregnancy and the delivery of her child.

Re: “Foodborne Fuss: The Boise Co-op Looks Ahead Following Salmonella Outbreak

Ada County resident Alice Jessup has filed a lawsuit against Boise Consumer Cooperative, Inc., d/b/a Boise Co-op. Jessup, who is pregnant, is suing over a severe case of salmonella poisoning she suffered after eating food from the Boise airport earlier this month that was prepared by the Co-op. Jessup is represented by Robie G. Russell of Russell Law Offices, and William D. Marler of Marler Clark Food Safety Law Firm, LLP. Marler Clark is representing three dozen victims in the outbreak, and has previously filed three other lawsuits.

On or about June 7, 2015, Alice Jessup purchased a chicken salad sandwich at a kiosk in the Boise airport that sold sandwiches prepared by Boise Co-op. She ate the sandwich the same day. She began to experience symptoms of Salmonella poisoning the very next day, which included severe abdominal cramps and repeated bouts of diarrhea. At this point, Jessup was approximately 28 weeks pregnant.

Over the next several days, while visiting family in California, Jessup’s symptoms worsened. She continued to suffer from severe diarrhea—at its worst, occurring hourly. She also developed a slight fever and headache.

Re: “Foodborne Fuss: The Boise Co-op Looks Ahead Following Salmonella Outbreak

Vince, did you deliberately plagiarize Waylon Brooks, or what? While I do agree with both of you that the Co-Op deli is overpriced on some items, there are some deals to be had as well. Having said that, it seems like this is also a problem at delis everywhere. Check other places out, they are all overpriced. A better system of weighing food products needs to be arrived at. Obviously, some food simply 'weigh more,' and then you end up paying more, and getting less for your money. Example: Kale and greens weigh virtually nothing, so you can buy a helluva lot for your $$$, making that a wise choice. Try the kale, apple, almond salad at the Co-Op - lotsa food for your money - and it's healthy/tasty!

Re: “Idaho's New Prison Scandal

None of this corruption could have gone on unless Butch Otter wanted it to go on. The minuscule fine levied against CCA for their many years of cheating the state, and thereby the taxpayers, is proof positive of that. He certainly didn't want that bunch turning state's evidence on him. They had given him $20,000 in campaign contributions and spread a lot more around on Republican legislative leadership.

Re: “The Wheel Deal: Is Boise's Future Rail or Rubber?

ACHD and other local transportation agencies do use and have used property taxes, impact fees and other methods to fund a portion of their system for a long time. On the other hand, Idaho Transportation Department roads are funded almost entirely by a "user pay" system.

There are some who contend that the Federal Gas Tax was never intended to be used for anything other than roads and bridges. However, some of it is diverted to other sources such as transit. I think that is a bad thing to do. Let the gas tax and registration fees pay for roads and bridges and find other sources to pay for transit.

I am not against transit/public transportation. I am against paying for it with gas tax and/or registration fees. My primary concern with the article was that it stated that the manufacturers of automobiles were directly subsidized by the government and that led to the demise of many transit systems. That is not correct. However, one could contend that the recent bailout of GM and Chrysler was a subsidy. I might not argue with that contention. That had nothing to do with the demise of many transit systems though.

Re: “Foodborne Fuss: The Boise Co-op Looks Ahead Following Salmonella Outbreak

Standards are set to be able to trust the food you buy, don't give you food poisoning or Salmonella. Also being a Member of Boise co-op and paying a higher price for healthier products, is also considered a higher standard to trust your food is safe to eat.

Re: “Idaho's New Prison Scandal

Interesting how a reporter can be so bias in a report. The majority of the article focuses on one side/opinion. Hey tip - shouldn't articles be unbiased in there positioning? Get all the facts from both sides!

Do we have enough citizens in the State of Idaho who are competent enough to do something about the disgracefulness around them or are they too busy trying to maintain their glassy-eyed positive thinking?

Actually, it is NOW probably one the SAFEST places you could eat having just gone through this whole process. I am sure that there is a hyper-vigilant practice of food safety and worker hygiene.

Re: “Idaho's New Prison Scandal

My little brother tore his miniscus while in IDOC (tendon in the knee) they have YET to fix it and it has now started to heal terribly. They classified him as black though he's native American so he gets in fights constantly because he's not actually black (blacks attack him) and because he's classified as black in the paperwork (whites and mexicans). These places are horrible. And while we NEED them, they need to be better run

Re: “Foodborne Fuss: The Boise Co-op Looks Ahead Following Salmonella Outbreak

Speaking as someone who spent about 48 hours in a 3-4 day window in bed sleeping and dealing with the joyous ramifications of the Salmonella sandwich I ate I still love the Boise Co-op. Will I be eating a sandwich from their deli anytime soon... probably not, but they still are an excellent member of our community. It is a shame to see people making a cash grab trying to sue. =(
