Kroger Settles Tainted Lobster Allegations

Paula Richardson (Texas) filed a lawsuit against Kroger in Jefferson County District Court alleging that she contracted food poisoning from a lobster purchased at a Beaumont store. Richardson claimed she became violently sick after eating the frozen lobster.

Kroger argued for summary judgment because Richardson had not a witness that could testify she was sickened by lobster nor had she a receipt that showed a lobster purchased at Kroger.

According to the original lawsuit filed in April 2009, Kroger “failed to inspect the frozen lobster and equipment used in maintaining its freshness, failed to properly maintain the frozen lobster, failed to properly warn Richardson about the condition of the lobster and enticed Richardson to purchase the defective lobster,” as reported in 2009 by the Southeast Texas Record.

Approximately three weeks before the first hearing was scheduled, the parties reached an undisclosed settlement.

The lawsuit was seeking unspecified damages plus pre- and post-judgment interest and any other relief to which she might be entitled, the Southeast Texas Record reported. disclaimer: This article: Kroger Settles Tainted Lobster Allegations was posted on Tuesday, July 12th, 2011 at 4:17 pm at and is filed under Food Poisoning Lawsuits.
