Marler Clark, Northern California Man File Lawsuit Against Townsend Farms
Date:6/17/2013

Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) June 17, 2013

A California man filed a lawsuit Friday against Oregon-based Townsend Farms. The lawsuit was filed in Yolo County Superior Court (Case No. YOSU CVPO 130001067) on behalf of Diego Durrell, who alleges he fell ill with a hepatitis A infection and was hospitalized after consuming Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend, produced by the defendants. He is represented by Marler Clark, the nation’s leading law firm representing victims of foodborne illness, and Hollister-based attorney Brad Sullivan.

Attorneys allege that Diego Durrell purchased and consumed a frozen berry and pomegranate seed blend manufactured by Townsend Farms in April of 2013 and fell ill with symptoms of hepatitis A infection on May 5. According to the lawsuit, Mr. Durrell was hospitalized on May 15, spending two nights in the intensive care unit, and was discharged on May 18. Court documents state that Mr. Durrell, who tested positive for hepatitis A, remains ill and continues to receive medical care.

“While the hepatitis A vaccine has been recommended for children since 1995, we’re seeing adults fall ill during this outbreak because they’ve never been vaccinated against this illness,” said attorney Bill Marler, who noted that adults over 50 years in age are more susceptible to hepatitis A infection.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that at least 99 acute hepatitis A illnesses were being investigated in connection with the consumption of Townsend Farms frozen berry blend sold at Costco and Harris Teeter stores in its June 14 update: Multistate outbreak of Hepatitis A infections potentially associated with “Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend” frozen berry and pomegranate mix.

“It’s a shame that a food people were eating because they thought it was healthy is causing so much illness,” said attorney Bill Marler. “What we think of as healthy food can only be good for us if it is safe.”

This is the 5th individual personal injury lawsuit filed by Marler Clark against Townsend Farms.*

BACKGROUND: Marler Clark has represented thousands of victims of foodborne illness outbreaks, including hundreds of victims of hepatitis A outbreaks and thousands who were exposed to hepatitis A and were forced to receive inoculations against the virus. In the last 20 years, marler Clark has recovered over $600 million on behalf of victims of foodborne illnesses such as hepatitis A, E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria.
