Kindercare E. coli Outbreak Case

Marler Clark’s E. coli lawyers represented the family of a 15-month-old child who became ill with an E. coli O157:H7 infection and hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) while attending a Kindercare facility in Folsom, California, in 2000.  The child was one of several who were diagnosed with E. coli infection while attending the Kindercare facility.

The Department of Social Services report regarding the E. coli outbreak stated, “[t]he cause of the [E. coli O157:H7] outbreak [at the Lexington Drive Kindercare] was due to a sponge being used simultaneously for wiping down a changing table and wiping down a table used for serving meals.”

The law firm resolved the legal case associated with the Folsom Kindercare E. coli outbreak in 2001.
