Nationwide Class Action Filed Over Egg Contamination
Lawyer says suit could cover 76,000 individuals
The article states:
The Iowa egg farms apparently responsible for the recent salmonella outbreak have been named in a class action lawsuit, brought on behalf of six consumers who became sick after eating tainted eggs.
The suit, filed Wednesday in a Chicago federal court, says that Wright County Egg and Hillandale Farms “failed to adequately and properly test, inspect and comply with federal and statutory regulations,” leading to the outbreak that sickened over 1,500 consumers.
… the class could eventually grow to over 76,000 people.
