The food safety attorneys at Pritzker Hageman have filed the first Listeria lawsuit in connection to the cooked chicken recall. Attorneys Fred Pritzker, Eric Hageman, and David Coyle filed the lawsuit (0:19-cv-02664) today in the U.S. District Court of Minnesota. The Defendants named in the suit include Tip Top Poultry, Inc., E.A. Sween Company, The Suter Company, Inc., and Sam’s West, Inc. (DBA Sam’s Club). Our firm is representing Mr. Craig Moraski, a resident of Bellevue, NE. Mr. Moraski developed a Listeria infection after eating contaminated chicken salad that came from Tip Top, E.A. Sween, Suter, and Sam’s.
On August 13th and on September 4th, Mr. Moraski’s wife purchased 2-lb. tubs of “Member’s Mark Chicken Salad” from a Sam’s Club store in Papillion, NE. She received an email notification on October 1st that the product was part of a major Listeria recall issued by Tip Top Poultry. Tip Top is an ingredient supplier to The Suter Company, which supplies chicken salad products to E.A. Sween, which then processes and sells the products to retail stores, including Sam’s. Mr. Moraski experienced symptoms of Listeria that same evening, including nausea and diarrhea. On October 5th, Mr. Moraski was hospitalized after testing positive for Listeria.
