Woman sues for spinach illness
A southeastern Michigan woman who says she became violently ill and was hospitalized after eating E. coli-tainted packaged spinach is suing retailer Meijer Inc. and supplier Dole Food Co. Inc.
Susan Kaminske’s lawsuit was filed in Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit by attorney Michael Heilman and seeks damages of more than $25,000 according to the Associated Press.
At least 189 people nationwide have become sick after eating spinach tainted by the same virulent strain of E. coli bacteria. The federal investigation to find the source is focused on Natural Selection Foods LLC, which packaged spinach for Dole and dozens of other brands.
