The Chicago Sun Times reports that an Illinois restaurateur has commenced a (national?) class action against a California food company for the value of discarded spinach.
George Gregousis, who owns Hamilton’s Restaurant in Glenview, threw out $40 worth of spinach when he heard about the outbreak. His restaurant has stopped serving spinach salad and omelettes, he said.
The defendant is Natural Selection Foods, a San Juan Bautista, Calif.,company that sells prepackaged spinach under Earthbound Farm and other brands. Federal authorities have identified Natural Selection as a possible source of the E. coli outbreak.
Gee, I wonder why the suit was launched before knowing for sure who caused the contamination?
