A Wisconsin woman who fell ill after eating spinach tied to the 2006 E. coli outbreak filed suit Sept. 3 to recover more than $400,000 in medical expenses.

Jane Majeska, who is represented by Seattle-based law firm Marler Clark LLP, is suing Dole Fresh Vegetables, Monterey, Calif., Natural Selection Foods, now known as Earthbound Farm, San Juan Bautista, Calif., Mission Organics, Salinas, Calif., the grocer Pic-n-Save, and several insurance companies.

According to the lawsuit filed in Wisconsin and posted on attorney Bill Marler’s blog, Majeska fell ill Sept. 4, a day after eating a bag of Dole-brand spinach, and was in the hospital until Oct. 24. The lawsuit claims Majeska suffered “severe and permanent” injuries after developing hemolytic uremic syndrome, which can cause kidney failure, and ran up medical bills exceeding $400,000. 

The lawsuit is asking for a compensation for Majeska’s medical costs as well as for “pain and suffering.”
