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.

The Nation’s Most Experienced Cyclospora Lawyers

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.
