Cabbage used in Applebee’s Oriental Chicken Salad was the source of an E. coli O111 outbreak. Our firm has filed the first lawsuit against Applebee’s on behalf of one of the people sickened in the outbreak.
The cabbage was likely contaminated before it was distributed to Applebee’s and processed for use in the salad, according to the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is still doing testing at the farms that may be involved in the outbreak. Our E. coli lawyers have gathered evidence against a specific grower and are anticipating adding the grower to the list of defendants (people being sued) in the Applebee’s lawsuit filed in July and other lawsuits they are planning on filing in the near future.
People were sickened in Minnesota, Wisconsin and two other states. All of the people were got sick between June 25 and July 3, 2014. MDH has not identified any new reports of E. coli O111 cases in Minnesota connected with this outbreak since July 10.
