At least 89 inmates and 7 staff members at a Saginaw County correctional facility have been sickened in an outbreak of E. coli poisoning. The prison is located at 9625 Pierce Road, Freeland, Michigan. Most of the cases were reported from August 27-30.

“Inmates sickened in this outbreak have the right to sue any company whose food made them sick,” said Fred Pritzker, national E. coli lawyer and food safety advocate. “The source of this outbreak is almost certainly food. I and my team of lawyers are here to help inmates get compensation for these illnesses.” Inmates and their families can contact Fred for a free consultation here. Fred has won millions for his clients, including a recent settlement for $4.5 million for a woman who got an E. coli infection from contaminated beef.

Four inmates sickened in the E. coli outbreak have been hospitalized. E. coli can cause severe dehydration leading to dangerously high blood pressure (hypertension), colitis, hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) and other potentially fatal health problems. If the bacteria get into the blood, the infection can spread throughout the body (sepsis).

It is also important for our attorneys to investigate how the prison treated the sickened inmates. If a prison fails to provide adequate medical care, it is a violation of the inmate’s constitutional rights. If you were a sickened inmate, we would like to know how you were treated.
