Date:10/3/2007

RADNOR, Pa., Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The following statement was issued today by the law firms Schiffrin Barroway Topaz & Kessler, LLP, and Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLC:

On October 3, 2007, SCHIFFRIN BARROWAY TOPAZ & KESSLER, LLP and JANET, JENNER & SUGGS, LLC filed the first nationwide class action against TOPPS MEAT COMPANY, LLC, WAL-MART STORES, INC., PATHMARK STORES, INC., WAKEFERN FOODCORP. d/b/a SHOPRITE and RASTELLI FINE FOODS, LTD. in the United States District Court for the Western District of New York on behalf of 1) all consumers who purchased and consumed ground beef products contaminated with E. coli O157:H7; and 2) all consumers who suffered personal injuries after consuming ground beef products contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.

"This Class Action was filed to protect the rights of all victims that have been wronged by the carelessness of the manufacturer, suppliers and distributors of the contaminated ground beef products. These defendant corporations must be held accountable for not protecting basic food, health and safety," said Tobias L. Millrood, partner with Schiffrin Barroway Topaz & Kessler, LLP, in Radnor, Pennsylvania.

On September 29, 2007, Topps Meat Company, LLC, announced that it was expanding its September 25, 2007 recall to include a total of 21.7 million pounds of frozen ground beef products distributed to retail grocery stores and food service institutions, including Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., Pathmark Stores, Inc., Wakefern Foodcorp. d/b/a Shoprite and Rastelli Fine Foods, Ltd., throughout the United States. The recall now includes all products produced by Topps with a "sell by date" or "best if used by date" that falls between September 25, 2007 and September 25, 2008. All recalled products have the USDA establishment number of EST 9748 located on the back panel of the package and/or in the USDA legend. The expansion came one day after the USDA suspended the grinding of raw products at the Topps plant in Elizabeth
