Los Burritos Mexicanos E. coli Outbreak - Illinois (2013)
Marler Clark represents victims of an E. coli O157:H7 outbreak traced to the Los Burritos Mexicanos restaurant in Lombard, Illinois, in June of 2013. The firm has filed 2 E. coli lawsuits against the restaurant and is bringing claims on behalf of several other victims of the E. coli outbreak.
The DuPage County Health Department counted 52 confirmed and probable E. coli cases among patrons of Los Burritos Mexicanos in mid-June. At least 6 people were hospitalized.
E. coli O157:H7 illnesses have fallen in the last decade; however, this outbreak shows what this pathogen can do to even healthy people,” said Marler Clark managing partner, Bill Marler.
