RADNOR, Pa., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The following statement was issued today by the law firms Schiffrin Barroway Topaz & Kessler, LLP, and Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLC:
Out of public health concerns and in light of the recent recall of 845,000 pounds of ground beef products by Cargill Meat Solutions Corporation for potential E. coli contamination, SCHIFFRIN BARROWAY TOPAZ & KESSLER, LLP and JANET, JENNER & SUGGS, LLC. have expanded their registry for victims of E. coli poisoning to document their injuries and illnesses. On October 4, a consumer registry was established for victims of E. coli poisoning from 22 million pounds of recalled Topps ground beef products. Dozens of seriously injured consumers have submitted complaints to the registry after the Topps recall was announced.
On October 6, 2007, Cargill Meat Solutions Corporation recalled 845,000 pounds of frozen ground beef patties produced at its Butler, Wisconsin location because of possible E. coli o157:H7 contamination, according to the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service. The problem was discovered through an investigation into four illnesses by the Minnesota Departments of Health and Agriculture. Wal-Mart owned, Sam's Club, has pulled the products from its stores after learning that the four illnesses under investigation are customers that purchased the recalled products from Sam's Clubs located in Eagan, Maple Grove and White Bear.
The recalled products were produced on various dates from August 9
through August 17, 2007, and were distributed to retail establishments,
restaurants and institutions nationwide. Each label bears the establishment
