Charlotte salmonella case featured on ‘The Doctors’

A 2-year-old Waxhaw girl, who contracted salmonella after her family’s pets ate contaminated dog food, will appear with her parents on a nationally syndicated consumer health show Thursday.

Brian and Elizabeth Hall and their daughter will be guests on “The Doctors.” The show is scheduled to run on WCNC Channel 36 at 2 p.m.

Amy gets sick every two to three weeks and will fight the disease for several years, doctors say. Her parents have sued Diamond Pet Foods, whose plant outside Columbia was the source of a nationwide salmonella outbreak in 2012.
