Listeriosis Wrongful Death Cases in Linked to Cheese Sold at Whole Foods Market

Attorney Fred Pritzker, who recently won $3,000,000 for a family in a wrongful death case, is representing the family of a woman who died following a listeriosis illness linked to cheese sold at a Whole Foods Market store.

If you contact our law firm for a free consultation, ask for attorney Fred Pritzker, who is our lead lawyer for these cases.

Fred is also representing a man who is part of the outbreak. Our firm has filed a lawsuit against Whole Foods Market Group, Inc., which cut wheels of Frescolina ricotta salata cheese and repackaged the wedges with a Whole Foods label.  We are arguing that Listeria from the ricotta salata contaminated other cheeses cut and repackaged by Whole Foods Market. Our client became seriously ill, suffering respiratory failure and neurological problems.

You can contact Fred or another Listeria lawyer at our law and discuss a listeriosis wrongful death lawsuit against Whole Foods Market and others. Fred represents families throughout the United States whose loved ones have been killed by food poisoned with dangerous pathogens, including L. monocytogenes, the bacteria that cause listeriosis.

As of September 20, 2012, a total of 15 persons infected with the outbreak strain of L. monocytogenes have been reported from 12 states and the District of Columbia.

  • The number of ill persons identified in each state is as follows: California (1), Colorado (1), District of Columbia (1), Maryland (3), Minnesota (1), Nebraska (1), New Jersey (1), New Mexico (1), New York (1), Ohio (1), Pennsylvania (1), Virginia (1), and Washington (1).
  • All 15 ill persons were hospitalized.
  • Three deaths have been reported in this listeriosis outbreak.
