Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Contaminated Beef Manufacturer

Comments Off

A class action lawsuit has been filed in US District Court in New York against Topps Meat Co. The company has recalled more than 21. 7 million pounds of frozen ground beef patties that have made at least 28 people sick from the E coli bacteria found in the beef. One person has developed hemolytic-uremic syndrome, a form of kidney failure from contracting the E coli bacteria. So far, the source of the contamination has not been determined. Topps Meat Co. processes the beef and distributes it to various stores throughout the country including Wal Mart, Shop Rite, and PathMark.
