AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A lawsuit accuses two Iowa egg producers
and a Texas-based restaurant chain of causing an Austin woman's
salmonella poisoning.

Houston lawyer Ron Simon filed the lawsuit Wednesday in Austin
on behalf of Amanda Sanchez, accusing Wright County Egg, Hillandale
Farms and Taco Cabana of negligence and deceptive trade practices.

Simon says his 34-year-old client ate eggs at a Taco Cabana in
northwestern Austin on June 26 and was hospitalized two days later
for what tests revealed was salmonella poisoning.

The lawsuit says Sanchez remained hospitalized for four days. It
alleges Wright County Egg and Hillandale Farms, both owned by
Quality Egg LLC, were the sources of the restaurant's eggs. Both
have recalled 550 million eggs because of possible salmonella
contamination.

Simon and Sanchez are seeking unspecified actual and punitive
damages. Messages left Wednesday with Quality Egg and San
Antonio-based Taco Cabana were not returned.
