Number of E. Coli Cases Reaches 109, Natural Selection Food may face Numerous Lawsuits

The number of E. Coli cases linked to contaminated spinach has reached 109. The <"">E. coli outbreak has been traced back to Natural Selection Food of Salinas, California, but 34 brands in total have been removed from supermarket shelves. The brands include company’s own brands and other companies that received spinach from Natural Selection Food, including: Hy Vee, Fresh and Easy, and Farmers Market.

So far the E. Coli outbreak has killed a 77-year-old woman from Wisconsin woman, but cases have been reported in 19 states, including: California, Connecticut, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wyoming. Officials in Ohio are investigating the death of a 23 month old girl who was diagnosed with E. coli to determine if the contaminated spinach was the cause.

While regulators are still investigating why the Natural Selection Food spinach was contaminated, lawyers advertising for e. coli cases have begun advertising for cases on the Internet. It appears these attorneys believe the e. coli contamination could have been avoided, and victims may have claims against Natural Selection Food.
