Homepage > OFT Food Safety Lawyers already representing more than 35 victims poisoned by Cyclospora in Fresh Express Bagged Salad Outbreak
July 7, 2020
Posted by: OFT Food Safety & Injury Lawyers
OFT Food Safety & Injury Lawyers are currently representing over three dozen individuals from all over the Midwest who have been sickened after eating bagged salads manufactured and distributed by Fresh Express, Inc. This outbreak appears to be massive. As of June 29th, federal authorities reported that 206 people had tested positive in eight states, with 23 hospitalizations. But OFT lawyers continue to hear from many people who have tested positive in the days since that report, so unfortunately we expect that number to grow substantially.
OFT’s Cyclospora lawyers filed the first two lawsuits stemming from this outbreak on June 22, 2020—one in Illinois, and one in Minnesota federal court. We also represent people who’ve been sickened in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Missouri. In all, OFT lawyers have filed 14 lawsuits seeking compensation for Cyclospora victims in just the past few months.
No firm has more experience representing people sickened by Cyclospora than OFT. We are currently representing over 100 people stricken with Cyclospora from Del Monte veggie trays sold at convenience stores. We have also represented dozens who contracted Cyclospora after eating salads from McDonald’s that were supplied by Fresh Express—the same suppler implicated in the current outbreak.
We will fight for everyone who ate one of the bagged salads and became sick with the Cyclospora parasite. If you or a loved one has been sickened in this outbreak and wish to pursue a legal claim for compensation, please contact us for a free consultation. Our outbreak hotline is 888-828-7087, and we can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
