Jamaica – Dozens of guests at Jamaica resort sickened by likely Salmonella outbreak

NY Post

An apparent salmonella outbreak at a resort in Jamaica has ruined vacations for potentially dozens of holiday travelers — and now some sickened guests are considering legal action, The Post has learned.

“It was a nightmare,” Chantel Ele of Lincoln, Nebraska, told The Post of her experience at the Grand Palladium Resort and Spa, which was echoed by other people online. “I don’t know how many people go on an all-inclusive vacation and lose weight.”

Iwaspoisoned.com, a platform that tracks food-borne illnesses, has tallied the number of guests who have allegedly become ill at the resort in December at close to 100, said the site’s founder Patrick Quade, who based the tally on reports to websites like TripAdvisor, Orbitz, Booking.com and the resort’s Facebook page.

“We have never seen an outbreak this size in the past for Jamaica,” he said.
