The Dayton Daily News has reported that Monterey, CA-based Dole Fresh Vegetables Inc. has reached separate undisclosed settlements with two of the parties claiming injuries in the Listeria outbreak which shutdown the Ohio Dole Fresh Vegetables salad processing facillity for three months back in 2016.

The litigation stemmed from the 9-state, 5-province Listeria outbreak that product sampling traced back to the Dole packaged salads facility in Springfield, OH. Dole has maintained the packaged salads where not adulterated when they left their facility. Fourteen Listeria infections were treated in Canada, according to that country’s Public Health Agency and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed 19 cases in the United States.

The parties are just a step short of requesting the dismissal of two cases that are separately before U.S. District Courts. The Plaintiffs are two elderly Ohio women, one from Franklin County and the other Warren County.

Seattle attorney Bill Marler, who represents the Warren County woman, says his nationally known food safety firm also has two cases still to be filed from the outbreak, including the Michigan death case.
