Sheetz is Heading Back to Court

Four members of a family in Preston County say they got sick after eating tomatoes in sandwiches they bought at the gas station in Parsons.

The lawsuit is seeking 70 thousand dollars, but Sheetz has denied causing the family’s problem. In July 2004 a salmonella outbreak made nearly 400 people sick. Sheetz has settled all but a few lawsuits from that outbreak. Wheeling-based Coronet Foods, the company that supplied the tomatoes, has since filed for banckruptcy.
