Lawsuit Surrounding Pre-Packaged Dole Lettuce

Leonard and Carol Tvenden’s lawsuit against the Dole Company is the first lawsuit to be filed in the E. coli outbreak stemming from the company’s prewashed lettuce mixes.
Carol fell ill with Gastro intestinal symptoms in mid-September after eating the lettuce, and had to spend nine days in the Fairmont Medical Center.
It has since been followed by a nationwide health alert and a recall of over 245,000 bags of the bagged salad.
