Woman sues Dole over E. coli

A Portland woman has gone to federal court to sue the Dole Food Company over packaged salad contaminated with E-coli.
Mary Scheetz, who suffered severe gastrointestinal illness and pain that put her in the hospital for several days, has filed a lawsuit in the US District Court in Portland, alleging that Dole was negligent for the contamination, and for not moving more quickly to get it off the shelves.
The Food and Drug Administration issued a nationwide health alert earlier this month against eating certain packaged Dole salads because of the contamination.
