A 20-year-old is suing Costco after E. coli-tainted chicken from a tradesman caused critical health problems, including epilepsy and kidney failure.
Chloe Rodgerson has filed a $2 million lawsuit opposite a bill retailer, dual years after apropos severely ill after eating Costco’s tainted duck salad, Fox 13 reports.
In Oct 2015, 19 people were infected with E. coli in California, Colorado, Missouri, Montana, Utah, Virginia, and Washington after eating Costco’s rotisserie duck salad.
Rodgerson had been admitted to a ICU after vomiting blood. Doctors struggled to diagnose what was causing problems, she says, until a FDA called to ask if she had eaten Costco duck salad.
Over a last two years, Rodgerson says that she racked adult $2 million in medical bills, as hemolytic uremic syndrome led to renal failure, epilepsy, and diabetes.
“I don’t have $2 million and I’m not going to have sufficient resources to keep myself alive going brazen in a future,” she told Fox 13.
Eventually, after a year and a half on dialysis, Rodgerson perceived a kidney transplant from her husband. She told Fox 13 that she continues to have health problems related to a sinister chicken, and will not be means to have children.
Costco did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s ask for comment. In further to Robinson, 4 other people were hospitalized after eating a retailer’s E. coli-tainted chicken, and one other grown hemolytic uremic syndrome.
