California Romaine Lettuce E. coli Outbreak Lawsuit

In May, 2008 ten people in western Washington became ill with E. coli infections after eating romaine lettuce in restaurants and cafeterias in Thurston and Pierce counties. The E. coli outbreak was traced to commercial, bagged romaine lettuce from Salinas Valley, CA. Marler Clark represented two people sickened in the outbreak in a lawsuit against the companies who manufactured and distributed the contaminated product. One was a student at Pacific Lutheran University in Parkland, WA, and the other a young woman who developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) and was infected at La Quinta Inn in Tacoma. Both claims have been resolved for confidential sums.
