Lawsuit filed against parsley grower linked to Washington, Oregon

A lawsuit has been filed against the Oregon farm that provided the parsley that sickened patrons at restaurants in Washington and Oregon.
Marler Clark filed the lawsuit on behalf of Elaine McPhatter, who fell ill with E. coli poisoning after eating parsley that was served at the Boat Shed restaurant in Bremerton, Washington. The parsley was grown by the Oregon farm listed in the lawsuit.
Ms. McPhatter remained hospitalized for eleven days at Harrison Hospital, undergoing several blood transfusions.
In 1998, parsley grown in Baja, California, was the source of a Shigella outbreak that sickened dozens of Americans.
