OFT Food Safety & Injury Lawyers Retained In Wisconsin E. Coli Outbreak

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- OFT Food Safety & Injury Lawyers have been retained by multiple Wisconsin families in connection with a current E. coli outbreak. The clients, located in Southwest Wisconsin and the Milwaukee area, were diagnosed with Shiga-toxin producing E. coli (STEC) requiring hospitalization.

Although the source of the outbreak is currently unknown and still under investigation, leafy greens and other produce items have caused similar illnesses at an increasingly alarming rate, including a recent outbreak in Maryland linked to prepackaged salads. "We know that there has been a persistent E. coli problem in the fresh produce industry," attorney Brendan Flaherty said. "It is very possible we are seeing yet another produce-based E. coli outbreak."
