Carneco and Sam’s Club E. coli Lawsuit

In August, 2004, Carenco foods recalled nearly 500,000 pounds of frozen ground beef and beef patties due to potential contamination with E. coli O157:H7 bacteria. The ground beef and beef patties, produced on June 21, 2004, had been distributed to Sam’s Club stores and sold to consumers.

The E. coli-contaminated ground beef was epidemiologically linked to at least five illnesses by Minnesota and Wisconsin health officials.

Marler Clark’s E coli lawyers filed an E. coli lawsuit against Carneco on September 24, 2004.  The lawsuit was filed on behalf of a nine-year-old boy who consumed “Northern Plains” ground beef patties produced by Carneco and sold at Sam’s Club in July.  His case was later resolved.
