Michigan State E Coli Victim Files Lawsuit

A University of Michigan student has filed a lawsuit against Detroit-based Aunt Mid’s Produce in connection with a statewide E. coli outbreak last month.  The lawsuit — the second against Aunt Mid’s since the outbreak — was filed Monday in Washtenaw County Circuit Court on behalf of a U-M senior who alleges she was sickened in the outbreak, which has been linked to Aunt Mid’s.  At least 38 people were sickened in Michigan last month by an E. coli strain linked to industrial-size packages of iceberg lettuce distributed by Aunt Mid’s to restaurants and institutions. In her complaint, the student says she consumed the contaminated lettuce in mid-September, and by Sept. 19, she began to experience abdominal cramps, vomiting, and bloody diarrhea.  She sought treatment at the University of Michigan Health Service Clinic. An MSU student has also sued Aunt Mid’s in connection with the E. coli outbreak.
