BUFFALO, NY - A local college student, whose lawyer claims was sickened by eating recalled food, has filed suit against Rich Products.
Attorney Jed Dietrich also told WGRZ-TV, that two other parties have retained him about potential litigation against the Buffalo based frozen foods giant.
"In this particular case we believe it is very straight forward," Dietrich said.
The lawsuit claims, among other things, that Rich Products failed to use reasonable care in the manufacture and sale of a host of Farm Rich frozen foods, produced at its Waycross Georgia plant, and which now been recalled by the company due to e-coli contamination.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Rob Ormsby, 18, a student at Niagara County Community College, who sustained severe kidney damage after contracting e-coli. The suit alleges Ormsby became ill as a result of his consumption of mini pizza slices, which were among the products recalled.
