The joint health department investigation resulted in the identification of an estimated 40 hepatitis A cases associated with the consumption of food purchased from the two Subway restaurants. A subsequent inspection by environmental sanitarians found that neither of the implicated Subway outlets had a written hand washing policy, and that employees were not required to document their knowledge of proper hand washing technique.
Marler Clark represented 29 people who became ill with hepatitis A during the outbreak in claims against Subway. The law firm settled the hepatitis A cases for a collective $1.06 million.
