Marler Clark files second E. coli lawsuit in Minnesota against Cargill

Marler Clark has filed the firm’s second E. coli lawsuit against Cargill today on behalf of Elk River, Minnesota, residents John and Barb Reber and their son, Scott.

Scott Reber became ill with an E. coli infection and was hospitalized for three days after eating a hamburger made from a Cargill ground beef patty.

“To date, Cargill has made no effort to compensate my clients for medical expenses or lost wages even though its product has been definitively linked to their illnesses,” said William Marler, managing partner of Marler Clark. “It’s time players in the meat industry, the USDA, and other entities involved in ensuring meat safety stepped up to the plate and stopped talking about putting food safety first and put money where their mouths are.”
