DES MOINES, Iowa — Chicken salad contaminated with salmonella bacteria made by an Iowa food-processing company and distributed by Fareway Stores has sickened 265 people in eight states and caused one death in Iowa.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the outbreak, which sickened people from early January through mid-March, appears to have ended.

Food safety attorney Bill Marler of Seattle says he and Iowa lawyer Steve Wandro represent 48 people filing lawsuits against Triple T Specialty Meats of Ackley, Iowa, which made the chicken salad, and Fareway, based in Boone, Iowa.
