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 -- http://www.donaheyohioinjurylawyers.com [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 http://www.donaheyohioinjurylawyers.com/products.jsp [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 http://donaheyohioinjurylawyers.com/attyBiog.jsp?x=2901359&y=2901353&z=2331271 [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.
