More E. coli cases in Minnesota

Seattle-based Marler Clark law firm struck back in a lawsuit filed suit yesterday alleging negligence against meat producer PM Beef and retailer Lund Food Holdings.

According to Minnesota Lawyer, Anne Herwig was one of seven Minnesotans infected with E. coli bacteria this spring, leading PM Beef to voluntarily recall 117,500 pounds of beef trim products.

The lawsuit in Hennepin County District Court seeks undisclosed damages for Herwig’s pain and suffering, medical expenses and emotional distress. The bug can cause severe stomach cramps and bloody diarrhea, with complications leading to kidney failure.
