James H. Brown & Associates has filed a class proceeding on behalf of families of children affected by the E. coli outbreak in Calgary, Alberta. If you have been affected, please contact us immediately.
James H. Brown & Associates has pioneered class actions in Canada for individuals who have suffered illness and long-term injury from E. Coli and other food poisoning outbreaks. In February of 2016, a multi-million dollar settlement was approved relating to recall of beef products, one of the largest food recalls in Canadian history.
E. Coli can result in lifetime injuries and debilitating conditions, particularly in children and older adults. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, fever, and diarrhea, that may progress to bloody diarrhea or blood in the stool. If you or a loved one are experiencing symptoms of food poisoning, do not wait to seek medical care or advice.
Long term risks from E. Coli infection include kidney failure, hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS), hypertension and cardiovascular disease. For the quickest response, visit your nearest hospital or call Health Link at 8-1-1 in Alberta to speak with a health care professional.
E. Coli is often transmitted through food, especially raw foods that have come into contact with manure from cattle or with contaminated beef. Undercooked beef is another potential source of E. Coli. Proper food preparation and sanitation is essential to avoid severe illness. E. Coli infection can be transmitted between infected individuals, particularly in daycares, schools and long-term care centres.
James H. Brown & Associates is also currently litigating a class action lawsuit regarding E. coli contaminated pork products and a class action lawsuit regarding salmonella-contaminated onions.
