During the investigation of what became a multi-state outbreak of Salmonella serotype Muenchen illnesses, Salmonella was detected in unopened containers of the Sun Orchard unpasteurized orange juice. Sun Orchard voluntarily recalled its unpasteurized orange juice, which had been distributed in various forms, to retail stores, restaurants, and other dining institutions under a number of different labels.
The Marler Clark law firm filed a class-action lawsuit on behalf of all people who had consumed Sun Orchard unpasteurized orange juice and who had become ill with Salmonella infections. The firm settled the lawsuit on behalf of 55 victims of the Salmonella outbreak for a reported $1.4 million.
