Tennessee health officials announced an E. coli O157:H7 outbreak linked to raw milk from French Broad Farm in Mascot, TN. Dr. Joe Childs of East Tennessee Children's Hospital reported that the hospital is approaching 10 cases. At least four people had HUS, a complication of E. coli resulting in kidney failure.
Knox County issued a public warning advising consumers to throw away all raw milk and unpasteurized products from the farm.
E. coli lawyers at Marler Clark represented one of the victims in this outbreak, achieving settlements covering medical expenses, wage loss, and pain and suffering. At this time, this case has been successfully settled.
