Baugher's Apple Cider E. coli Outbreak Lawsuit

On November 10, 2010 the Marler Clark food safety lawyers filed a lawsuit against Baugher’s Orchard and Farm, the Westminster, Maryland farm that recalled its unpasteurized apple cider products after they were identified by Maryland public health authorities as the source of an E. coli O157:H7 outbreak among at least 7 state residents.

After its investigation into a number of related E. coli O157:H7 cases in October of 2010, the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene warned consumers who were in possession of Baugher’s apple cider to discard the cider due to potential E. coli contamination. In early November, public health officials confirmed the link between the E. coli outbreak and Baugher’s apple cider.

Marler Clark represented one person in the Baugher’s apple cider E. coli outbreak. The claim has been successfully resolved.
