Seattle lawfirm Marler Clark has announced the settlement of two salmonella cases stemming from the May 2001 salmonella outbreak tied to contaminated cantaloupe.

The FDA advised consumers of an outbreak of salmonella poona linked to cantaloupe imported to the U.S. by Shipley Sales Service of Nogales, Arizona. The FDA detained all cantaloupe imported by Shipley Sales Service and took steps to prevent the importation of any additional contaminated cantaloupe.

The cases settled were for the wrongful death case of 78-year old Florence Dodds and the personal injury case of fifteen month old Nathan Eget.
