According to a settlement report filed with the court, a deal was reached between the family of a woman who allegedly died after eating tainted ground beef and Shaw’s supermarket in Seabrook and distributors Fairbank Farms of New York and Greater Omaha Packing Co of Nebraska. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court on behalf of the estate of Carolyn Black by her daughter Lori Precourt after Black became sick with “symptoms consistent with E. coli infection,” and was hospitalized. According to the suit, Black died at the age of 70, “as a result of respiratory failure, multisystem failure and hemolytic uremic syndrome/thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura.” Black consumed the tainted beef on October 1, 2009 and died October 30.

On October 31, 2009 the USDA recalled 545,699 pounds of ground beef based on an E. coli outbreak being investigated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The tainted beef was supplied by Greater Omaha Packing Co and distributed by Fairbank Farms to Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, including Shaw’s supermarkets in Seabrook New Hampshire.
