New Seasons Market Ground Beef E. coli Outbreak
Marler Clark investigated an E. coli O157:H7 found in ground beef products sold at New Seasons Market in the Portland metro area.
On November 10, 2019, Oregon health officials announced an E. coli O157:H7 outbreak linked to ground beef sold at New Seasons Markets in the Portland metro area. New Seasons Market then recalled ground beef sold at any of their three Portland, Oregon stores on the dates ranging from Oct. 19 to Oct. 23, 2019.
As of November 2019, three individuals tested positive for E. coli O157:H7 after eating ground beef from New Seasons Market Outlets. Following laboratory testing of the consumed ground beef, Oregon State Public Health Laboratory found that all three victims had genetically matched strains of E. coli O157:H7.
The New Season Market locations that sold the recalled ground beef are located in North Lombard, North Interstate and Cedar Hills. The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) advised customers who purchased the ground beef between the dates in question to throw it away immediately.
New Seasons Market suspended the sale of the ground beef while the Oregon Department of Agriculture conducted an outbreak investigation. Investigation of this outbreak is now over.
