Donahey Law Firm Files E. Coli Product Liability Lawsuit Against Kroger Company in Franklin County Court

Columbus-based law firm represents Pickerington man who contracted E. coli from ground beef purchased at Columbus-area Kroger store

Columbus, Ohio (Lexis Nexis) July 25, 2008 -- [The Donahey Law Firm]], one of the oldest personal injury law firms in central Ohio, has filed a product liability lawsuit in Franklin County Court (Case No. 08CV9804) against The Kroger Co., in connection with an E. coli outbreak that occurred last month in Michigan and Ohio.

The [product liability] lawsuit was filed on behalf of a Pickerington, Ohio resident who purchased ground beef from a Kroger store in the Columbus area and subsequently contracted E. coli poisoning from the contaminated beef. The victim experienced severe intestinal complications as a result of his E. coli infection and continues to suffer from various symptoms of the illness.

E. coli is a deadly food-borne pathogen that often causes major abdominal and intestinal illness. In children and the elderly, the infection can cause a complication called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a condition that can lead to serious kidney damage and death.

According to [Richard Donahey]], senior partner of The Donahey Law Firm, officials from the states of Ohio and Michigan, as well as the Centers for Disease Control, last month investigated a series of E. coli infections in Ohio and Michigan residents. On June 25th, Kroger Co. instituted a recall of ground beef products bearing a Kroger label that were sold between May 21 and June 8, 2008.

"Anyone who purchased ground beef products from Kroger stores in Michigan or Ohio during this three-week window of time and subsequently fell ill should contact our office for a free consultation about how to protect their rights as a consumer," said Donahey.
