E. coli lawsuit filed against meat supplier, grocer

An E. coli lawsuit has been filed in Albany County Supreme Court by Marler-Clark and Underberg & Kessler against Topps Meat Company and Price Chopper. The contaminated hamburger was produced by Topps and sold by Price Chopper.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Darrell and Laurie Boehlke and their 8-year-old daughter, Erika, who became ill after eating a hamburger contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.
Erika developed hemolytic uremic syndrome as a result of the E. coli infection, and underwent eleven rounds of kidney dialysis. Erika now suffers from permanent kidney damage and remains at risk of future complications, including end stage renal disease.
Marler Clark and Underberg & Kessler have together represented hundreds of New York citizens who have become ill with food- or water-borne illnesses.
