Tainted Costco product linked to 19 bacterial infections

Posted under Product Liability

Health authorities in the U.S. have been notified of 19 cases of bacterial infection in seven states connected to the Costco chicken salad products that may have been contaminated with a strain of E. Coli, an NBC News article reported on November 24.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) told reporters that at least five of the infected people required hospitalization and two others are not likely suffering from a kidney failure. The CDC officials who have been investigating the bacterial outbreak said that 14 of the affected patients bought or consumed “rotisserie chicken salad” products from Costco. Consumers are warned to immediately discard the possibly contaminated chicken salad bought before November 20.
