Marler Clark has filed a lawsuit against The Dole Company, Inc., on behalf of Leonard and Carol Tvedten of Fairmont, Minnesota. Jardine, Logan, and O’Brien, a respected Minnesota law firm, also represents the Tvedten’s.
Carol Tvedten fell ill with gastrointestinal symptoms in mid-September after eating pre-washed Dole brand salad at home with her husband. Leonard Tvedten also fell ill, but did not require hospitalization.
Tests confirmed that the strain of E. coli that had infected Carole Tvedten was precisely the same as the strain that health officials cultured from Dole lettuce samples that were the subject of a nationwide recall.
