Lawsuit seeks class-action in egg recall case

Posted by Paige Bresky --email

DES MOINES, IA (AP) --- A lawsuit has been filed seeking class-action status for a case against two Iowa farms involved in a recall of 550 million eggs linked to salmonella illnesses nationwide.

The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in federal court in Chicago on behalf of six people who became ill after eating eggs produced at Wright County Egg near Galt, Iowa, and Hillandale Farms of Iowa, near New Hampton.

Spokeswomen for Wright County Egg and Hillandale Farms declined to comment.

Ken Moll, an attorney representing the plaintiffs, says his firm has received permission to inspect the farms to gather evidence.

The lawsuit claims the egg companies were negligent in not producing eggs safe for public consumption, and suggests far more people could have been sickened by the eggs than the more than 1,500 known cases.
