So far 18 people made sick by salmonella-infected salmon from the Foppen factory have joined forces to fight for compensation, according to media reports on Thursday.
All 18 spent time in hospital during the outbreak, eventually traced to a production line in Greece.
In total at least 550 people became ill after eating the smoked salmon and at least two people died.
