Marler Clark, Seattle Women, Sue Ethiopian Restaurant over E. coli Outbreak

(Apr 04, 2013, Seattle, WA (PRWEB))--An E. coli lawsuit was filed today against Ambassel Restaurant, an Ethiopian restaurant located in Seattle’s Central District that is alleged to be the source of an E. coli O157:H7 outbreak among restaurant patrons in February.

The lawsuit was filed in King County Superior Court (13-2-15592-3 SEA) on behalf of two Seattle women who fell ill with E. coli infections after eating at the restaurant by Marler Clark, the nation’s leading law firm representing victims of foodborne illness.

According to the complaint, the two plaintiffs dined at Ambassel restaurant on February 8 and February 15, respectively. Both women fell ill with symptoms of E. coli O157:H7 infection, including bloody diarrhea, within 5 days of eating at the restaurant and sought medical care.

Both women submitted stool samples that court documents say later returned positive for a strain of E. coli O157:H7 that was indistinguishable from the strain isolated from other E. coli outbreak victims’ stool samples.

The complaint states that Ambassel restaurant was closed by the Seattle-King County Public Health Department on March 6, 2013 after the agency determined that food served at the restaurant had caused the E. coli outbreak. Read more from Seattle pi »
