A woman has filed a lawsuit alleging Dole Fresh Vegetables, Inc. sold salad mixes contaminated with Listeria. Georgostathis v. Dole Fresh Vegetables, Inc., No. 16-0360 (S.D. Ohio, filed March 7, 2016). The woman asserts that after her mother ate the salad mix, she became infected with Listeria and felt extreme head and neck pain that ulti- mately caused her to become comatose. The complaint argues that the strain of Listeria in the plaintiff’s salad mix is “indistinguishable from the strain involved in the recent Listeria outbreak linked to Dole salad products produced at the Springfield, Ohio processing facility.” The outbreak has reportedly sickened nearly 30 people in the United States and Canada who were all hospitalized as a result of contracting Listeria. The plaintiff, who is represented by foodborne-illness attorney Bill Marler, seeks damages and attorney’s fees for allegations of negligence, product liability and violations of Ohio consumer-protection law and the Uniform Commercial Code.
