S & S Foods - Goshen Boy Scout Camp E. coli Lawsuit

An outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 in July and August, 2008 at a Boy Scout camp in Goshen Virginia was traced to contaminated hamburger meat.  More than 84 people who attended the camp between July 20 and August 2 were infected; at least 8 were hospitalized.  Investigations found that hamburger meat produced and distributed by S & S Foods LLC of Azusa, California contained E. coli O157:H7 that was a genetic match to the illnesses.  As a result, S & S recalled 153,630 pounds of frozen ground beef products.

Marler Clark represented two boy scouts sickened in the outbreak.  Both claims have been resolved.
