Bankrupt Coronet Foods is now facing a lawsuit by 92 people from several states. A judge has ruled the people who claim they got sick after eating tainted roma tomatoes could sue Sheetz, the store that sold them, and the company that supplied them, Wheeling based Coronet Foods.
Coronet laid off their entire workforce after the salmonella outbreak when more than 400 people got sick. The judges ruling says they are responsible for those who got sick. The attorney representing those who say they got salmonella says he would like to settle the dispute outside of court through mediation.
