Costco Steak Linked to E. coli O157:H7 Infections

Attorney Fred Pritzker, who recently won $4,500,000 for an E. coli victim, is closely monitoring the outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 infections linked to Kirkland brand steak sold at Costco. Fred represents E. coli food poisoning victims throughout the United States, including children and adults who develop hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP). The $4.5M win was for a woman who developed E. coli-HUS kidney failure after eating contaminated beef.

The current outbreak connected to the Costco steak is in Canada, but the processor of the steak, XL Foods, Inc. also sold beef products to distributors in the United States. If contaminated steak sickens U.S. residents, Fred is available to help and can be contacted for a free consultation here.
