Bravo Farms Gouda Cheese E. coli Outbreak Lawsuits

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease control and Prevention, at least 38 people became ill with E. coli O157:H7 infections after eating Bravo Farms Gouda cheese. Victims of the E. coli outbreak were from 5 states: Arizona (19), Colorado (11), California (3), New Mexico (3), and Nevada (2). All victims consumed Bravo Farms Dutch Style Gouda Cheese that had been purchased at Costco, or sampled the cheese during Costco’s “cheese road show,” which occurred in October 2010.

Costco recalled all Bravo Farms Dutch Style Gouda Cheese and warned all customers who purchased or sampled the cheese about the risks associated with E. coli infection, which include hemolytic uremic syndrome, a complication of E. coli infection that can lead to organ failure.

The Marler Clark E. coli attorneys filed multiple lawsuits against Bravo Farms Cheeses LLC; and represented residents of Arizona, Nevada, California, and Colorado who were sickened in the outbreak. Marler Clark represented a total of 9 people who became ill with E. coli infections after eating Bravo Farms Gouda Cheese. All claims have been successfully resolved.
