"Victims all over the country are suffering because of the breakdown of our meat supply safety system," said the plaintiffs’ attorney William Marler. "Everyone deserves pathogen-free meat in restaurants, grocery stores and summer camp."
A Boy Scout infected by E. coli while attending camp in Goshen filed suit Friday in the Circuit Court of Rockbridge County. The lawsuit — filed on behalf of Zachary Yost and his mother, Devon Drew — names S & S Foods LLC as the defendant. In August, more than 80 people at a Boy Scout camp near Goshen were infected with E. coli. Yost attended the camp from July 20-26. The outbreak was linked to hamburger meat manufactured and sold by S & S Foods of California. The company recalled more than 150,000 pounds of meat.
