Judge Approves E. coli Settlement

A federal judge has approved a settlement between Cargill Meat Solutions Corp. and a Cold Spring woman injured by contaminated meat.

U.S. District Judge Donovan Frank signed off on the settlement in a sealed court order Tuesday. Terms of the settlement were undisclosed.

Our client, former children’s dance instructor Stephanie Smith sued after E. coli in a Cargill-made hamburger left her paralyzed. Smith was the subject of a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times story (found here) about food safety.
