AgVenture Farms Petting Zoo E. coli Outbreak Litigation

The Florida State Department of Health (DOH) identified 22 confirmed cases of E. coli O157:H7 and Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome in Central Florida during March, 2005. At least 35 additional cases were suspected as of April 1, 2005. The DOH stated that exposure to AgVenture's animals at three fairs - the Central Florida Fair in Orlando, the Florida State Fair in Tampa, and the 2005 Florida Strawberry Festival were the common link between all E. coli victims.

Marler Clark's E. coli attorneys filed three individual lawsuits on behalf of people who became ill with E. coli O157:H7 after attending the Central Florida State Fair and the Florida Strawberry Festival. All cases were resolved in May, 2007.
