Oregon Personal Injury Law Firm, Dr. Aaron DeShaw, Esq., P.C., is now accepting client injured by E. coli contamination of I.M. Healthy Brand SoyNut Butter manufactured by The SoyNut Butter Company, and Soy Nut Butter by Dixie Dew Products Inc.

Recently, the Center for Disease Control (“CDC”) and FDA disclosed to the public that there has been a multi-state outbreak of Shiga Toxin producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 caused by these soy nut butters, resulting in hospitalizations.  The CDC has been able to identify that the strain of E. coli that has been causing hospitalizations is directly connected to this soy butter, resulting in E. coli outbreaks in Oregon, Washington, California, Arizona, Wisconsin, Missouri, Virginia, New Jersey and Maryland.

According to the CDC, on March 7, 2017, The SoyNut Butter Company recalled  “I.M. Healthy SoyNut Butters” and I.M. Healthy Granola products.

Then, on March 10, 2017, The SoyNut Butter Company expanded its recall to include all Dixie Diner’s Club brand “Carb Not Beanit Butter.”

Some of the people have been hospitalized, and several have developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (a type of kidney failure).  87% of the people impacted by the outbreak are younger than 18 years old.
