Tennessee woman blames nail salon after almost losing arm from flesh-eating bacteria infection: report

Westlake Legal Group 49e156a0-Flesh-Eating-Bacteria-latino Tennessee woman blames nail salon after almost losing arm from flesh-eating bacteria infection: report fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/tennessee fox-news/health/infectious-disease/flesh-eating-bacteria fox-news/health/infectious-disease fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace article 7768f4f6-98e0-5993-9293-12a806dd3889

A Tennessee woman claims she almost lost one of her arms after contracting a flesh-eating bacteria at her local nail salon, according to a report.  

Jayne Sharp told Knoxville’s WBIR-TV she’s undergone several surgeries to remove large chunks of tissue in one of her hands that was destroyed due to the infection. She claims she first began seeing symptoms months ago after she was cut on her right thumb while getting a manicure at Jazzy Nail Bar in Knoxville.

ORLANDO MAN WHO LOST 25 PERCENT OF SKIN TO FLESH-EATING BACTERIA HAS DIED

“While I was there I got stuck on my thumb and I went ‘ouch’ but I went back to looking at my telephone,” she told the station. Her thumb began to throb and she fell so ill that she had trouble sleeping that night, she said.

Sharp went to Summit Medical Group the next day to be checked for the flu. When the flu test came back negative, nurse practitioner Nikki Brown drew a line around a spot on Sharp’s thumb that showed an unusual amount of swelling. Brown told her to monitor the spot in case the swelling got worse. Brown ordered Sharp to go to the emergency room the next day after being told over the phone that the swelling had spread up her right arm. Sharp also developed a red rash.

“She could have lost her finger or her arm if she hadn’t been diagnosed properly,” Dr. Udit Chaudhuri, an internal medicine specialist with Summit Medical Group who also treated Sharp, told WBIR.

He explained that flesh-eating disease, known medically as necrotizing fasciitis, can be contracted through an open cut or wound and “this bacteria gets introduced under the skin into the soft tissue and then into the blood stream.” He added that individuals with compromised immune systems are more likely to contract the disease. Sharp “is a diabetic so that made her more susceptible,” Chaudhuri said.

A manager at Jazzy Nail Bar told WBIR-TV that the business passed a state inspection conducted several days after Sharp reported she had been infected by flesh eating bacteria. He said the nail salon cleans its tools in compliance with state-mandated regulations. The Tennessee Board of Cosmetology and Barber Examiners establishes sanitary rules for licensed salons across the state.

Sharp told the station she is beginning to regain feeling in her right hand after the surgeries but still has trouble flossing her teeth. “My life took a total turn when this happened to me,” she said.

Fire erupts on field before game between Colts and Titans in Tennessee

A game between the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans got off to a scorching start as a large fire erupted at Nissan Stadium in Nashville just before both teams were set to play.

A piece of pyrotechnics equipment designed to shoot flames during introductions ignited near the sidelines where Titans players usually enter the field, making for a crazy scene on Sunday afternoon just prior to the singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

ANTONIO BROWN REJECTED $2M SETTLEMENT WITH WOMAN WHO ACCUSED HIM OF RAPE: REPORT SAYS

One of the flame-throwing boxes tipped over toward the stands, setting the turf on fire as the Titans celebrated the jersey retirements of former players Steve McNair and Eddie George, ESPN reported.

It could be seen blowing hot flames toward the spectators in a manner that resembled a massive flamethrower. Smoke blew out from the flames into the air toward spectators sitting nearby who were forced to move back a few rows to safety.

Salmonella outbreak connected to backyard poultry sickens more than 1,000 across 49 states: CDC

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6014009438001_6014008273001-vs Salmonella outbreak connected to backyard poultry sickens more than 1,000 across 49 states: CDC Madeline Farber fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/tennessee fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/ohio fox-news/health/infectious-disease/outbreaks fox news fnc/health fnc e554d6c5-1d00-520e-88f8-085363f6e85f article

More than 1,000 people have been sickened by a salmonella outbreak linked to backyard poultry, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in an update late last week.

The CDC on Friday announced a total of 1,003 people have been sickened by the outbreak across 49 states — an increase of 235 people since the federal health agency last issued an update in July. At least two people have died and 175 have been hospitalized due to the illness.

As of Friday, 73 people in Ohio were sickened — the most of any state where cases have been reported. Tennessee followed closely behind with 67 cases.

DRUG-RESISTANT SALMONELLA LINKED TO SOFT CHEESE, BEEF SICKENS HUNDREDS: CDC

“Of 850 ill people with age information available, 192 are children younger than 5 years,” the CDC said, adding “epidemiologic and laboratory evidence indicate that contact with backyard poultry, such as chicks and ducklings, from multiple hatcheries, are the likely source of these outbreaks.”

Many people reported buying chicks and ducklings from agricultural stores, websites, and hatcheries prior to becoming ill.

“Six of the outbreak strains making people sick have been identified in samples collected from backyard poultry environments at people’s homes in California, Minnesota, and Ohio and from poultry environments at retail stores in Michigan and Oregon,” said the agency.

Symptoms of salmonella usually develop 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria, with most people developing diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps. The illness usually lasts four to seven days and most people recover without treatment.

“In some people, the illness may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized,” according to the CDC. “Salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the bloodstream and then to other places in the body.”

Federal health officials say that children younger than 5 years of age, pregnant women, adults 65 and older, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

The CDC estimates salmonella causes about 1.2 million illnesses, 23,000 hospitalizations, and 450 deaths in the U.S. every year.

Food is the source for about 1 million of those illnesses.

AMID SALMONELLA OUTBREAK, CDC WARNS: DON’T ‘KISS OR SNUGGLE’ CHICKENS

In May, when 52 people were affected by the outbreak, the CDC warned to not “kiss or snuggle” chickens. It also issued a list of precautions the public should take when handling the animals to avoid contracting the illness, such as always washing your hands after handling a backyard flock and not letting the birds inside the home — especially in areas where food is prepared.

The CDC also said at the time that children younger than 5 or adults over 65 should avoid handling “chicks, ducklings, or other poultry” altogether.

Tennessee man sues Popeyes over fruitless (or chickenless) hunt for sold-out sandwich

Westlake Legal Group AP19234677071172 Tennessee man sues Popeyes over fruitless (or chickenless) hunt for sold-out sandwich Louis Casiano fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/tennessee fox-news/odd-news fox-news/lifestyle/fast-food fox news fnc/food-drink fnc c3ebd18e-3bab-53de-8f09-8962be658bce article

A Tennessee man who spent “countless time driving” from one Popeyes to another in search of its popular chicken sandwich is suing the fast-food chain after he was left hungry.

“I can’t get happy; I have this sandwich on my mind. I can’t think straight,” Craig Barr told The Chattanooga Times Free Press on Thursday. “It just consumes you.”

Barr’s suit accused Popeyes of deceptive business practices and false advertising, the paper reported. He said he was scammed out of $25 by a man claiming to be a Popeyes employee who said he was selling sandwiches behind a restaurant.

Once he gave the scammer the money, he never saw him again, Barr said. He also claimed he blew out a tire and damaged a rim driving from one Popeyes to another and was humiliated when his friends laughed at his ordeal.

BUFFALO WILD WINGS JOINING POPEYES, CHICK-FIL-A ‘CHICKEN WARS’ WITH 2 NEW SANDWICHES

Barr said various locations turned him away after their supply of the in-demand edible sold out. He claimed the chain overhyped the item and purposefully lowered quantity to increase demand.

And speaking of demand, he’s demanding $5,000.

“It’s totally deceptive. Who runs out of chicken? It’s a big fiasco,” he told the paper. “Someone has to stand up to Big Corporate. Everyone is captivated by these sandwiches.”

Messages to Restaurant Brands International, the owner of the Miami-based chicken chain, were not immediately returned.

Demand for the new sandwich exceeded expectations, with the item selling out within days of its Aug. 12 launch.

When one North Carolina location ran out of chicken, a Chick-fil-A employee across the street handed out the competitor’s sandwiches to Popeyes workers.

The new Popeyes menu item gained widespread popularity after a feud with Wendy’s over social media about which company had the best sandwich.

A Tennessee man is accused of slashing his boss’ throat with a steak knife on Friday after returning to work from time off to de-stress, according to local reports.

John Herren, 40, walked into his workplace, the civil engineering firm Dale & Associates, in Berry Hill, Tenn., carrying two knives, walked behind his supervisor’s desk allegedly grabbed his head and slashed his throat, The Tennessean reported, citing an affidavit.

The alleged attack occurred at about noon.

The supervisor and Herren both ran out of the office, the newspaper reported. Herren took the knife he allegedly used but dropped a second knife.

Berry Hill Police reportedly recovered the dropped knife.

Doctors treated the supervisor at a nearby hospital for “superficial lacerations on his throat,” the Tennessean reported, adding that emergency medical services noted that the outcome could have been a lot worse since the cut was very close to a main artery.

Roy Dale, who owns Dale & Associates and was not injured, told WKRN-TV that Herren had worked at the civil engineering firm for over a decade as a designer.

The television station reported that Herren recently told his bosses he was feeling stressed and needed some time off.

“John was just expressing to us he was having a difficult time with that and was very stressed with that and really wanted to do something different with the company and we were happy to accommodate him,” the news station reported Dale said.

“But still he was struggling, and he took off and when he came back this happened.”

Herren reportedly was arrested “without incident” a short time after the alleged attack. He has been charged with attempted criminal homicide.

Herren did not have a previous arrest history in the state of Tennessee, WKRN reported, citing the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
