Everett father sues over potpies

Eric Robertson’s 2-year-old daughter, Rebecca, tested positive for the same strain of salmonella associated with the ConAgra pot pie outbreak.  Full Story from Seattle Post Intelligencer

First it was peanut butter, now it’s potpies," said William Marler, the Robertsons’ attorney, who filed a similar lawsuit on behalf of a Minnesota family. "It’s time ConAgra took a hard look at the manufacturing processes for all of its food products and stopped shipping contaminated product to consumers."

ConAgra voluntarily stopped producing its Banquet potpies on Oct. 9, and told consumers not to eat its chicken or turkey potpies. It recalled the products two days later.

The company recalled all potpies produced in its Marshall, Mo., plant and sold under the labels Banquet, Albertsons, Food Lion, Great Value, Hill Country Fare, Kirkwood, Kroger, Meijer and Western Family. This includes all flavors and all varieties.
