Nebraska resident Dale Braddock has filed a federal lawsuit against Jensen Farms of Holly, Colorado, the Kroger Company of Ohio, Frontera Produce of Texas, and the Primus Group of California, alleging that he and his daughter became sick after eating tainted cantaloupe. The Primus Group performed the food safety audit, and Kroger Company owns Baker’s Supermarket, the store where the tainted cantaloupe was purchased.

According to the lawsuit, Braddock bought the cantaloupe in August, and was taken by ambulance to the hospital on September 4. Jensen Farms issued a voluntary recall of the fruit on September 14. The FDA announced it had found the listeria bacteria in cantaloupe on September 19.

The listeria outbreak was the one of the deadliest food poisoning outbreaks in the history of the nation, and has killed 29 people and made 139 others ill. One of the people who died from the tainted fruit is George Drinkwalter, of Cody while six people from Nebraska were sickened by the cantaloupe.

The lawsuit seeks compensation for injuries, damages, plus attorney fees, costs, and any relief the court deems just. The lawsuit also demands a jury trial in Omaha, the Journal Star reported. disclaimer: This article: Omaha Man Files Lawsuit against Jensen Farms was posted on Tuesday, December 6th, 2011 at 8:57 pm at and is filed under Food Poisoning Lawsuits.
