A family is suing three meat companies after their loved one died of kidney failure caused by E. coli.

The family of Robert Danell, 62, filed the lawsuit on January 8 in Minnesota state court in Stearns County. According to his brother, Bill Danell, Robert had been hospitalized with bloody diarrhea for 10 days before he died. He says he did not realize he was infected with E. coli until it was too late to save him. He also says no one is exactly sure what caused his brother’s E. coli. “They said he could have gotten it from a hamburger, but we don’t really know for sure,” he said, according to United Press International (UPI).

JBS USA, Tyson Fresh Meats, Beef Products Inc., and several retailers are listed in the complaint as defendants. The lawsuit alleges that Robert Danell became sick after eating a Tyson hamburger containing an additive produced by BPI and meat supplied by JBS, which the family became aware of from a Star series in December, “Beef’s Raw Edges.” The story mentioned the death of Robert Banell. Tyson and BPI both say they don’t believe their products were the source of the E. coli. BPI says it treats its additive, nicknamed “pink slime,” with ammonia, which kills any pathogens, UPI reported. disclaimer: This article: Family Of Man Who Died Of Kidney Failure Caused By E.
