Maryland confirms fifth E. coli case traced to spinach

The Baltimore Channel is reporting that Maryland has confirmed the state’s fifth E. coli O157:H7 illness traced to contaminated spinach.

John Hammond, a spokesman for the state health department, said two more suspected Maryland cases are pending, including that of an elderly resident who died.

The state agency hasn’t identified that person, but family members sait it was June E. Dunning, 86, of Hagerstown, who died Sept. 13 of an E. coli complication.

Marler Clark has filed a lawsuit on behalf of the family of Mrs. Dunning last week. The lawsuit was filed against Dole and Natural Selections.
