Federico’s E. coli Lawsuit Challenges Restaurant On Food Safety

Federico's-E.-coli-OutbreakWhat began as a single Federico’s E. coli lawsuit has now progressed into a set of legal complaints on behalf of three restaurant customers, with more victims waiting in the wings to join the litigation. Even if your injuries were not life-threatening, you could still make a substantial recovery in consideration for pain, suffering, medical bills and other associated losses linked to contaminated food at the Mexican-style restaurant in the West Valley area of Litchfield Park, Arizona.

Maricopa County officials have completed their inspection of the restaurant at 13132 West Camelback and the facility has reopened for business.  The latest preliminary count of people sickened in the outbreak is 68, including 23 who were hospitalized for HUS and other complications. The local health department said the adulterant causing all the illnesses appears to be E. coli O157:H7, but the exact food source has not been identified.

As families consider their legal options, E. coli lawyer Fred Pritzker is reminding them that you can sue a restaurant over E. coli food poisoning even if the precise cause of the outbreak is never identified. Food poisoning attorneys help outbreak victims hold food purveyors responsible for impurities and E. coli O157:H7 is about as dangerous a pathogen as epidemiologists can find.

The outbreak began in late July and some media reports from the West Valley indicate that more than 68 people have been sickened. Health officials have been urging anyone who suffered bloody diarrhea or other symptoms of E. coli poisoning after eating at the restaurant since July 23 to immediately seek medical attention. The same authorities have reminded┬áhealth care providers that children shouldn’t be treated with antibiotics if they have an E. coli infection.
