LAS VEGAS -- A Nevada resident has filed a lawsuit against an Oregon berry producer that was linked to a hepatitis A outbreak affecting dozens of people in several Western states, an attorney representing the class action lawsuit announced.
The outbreak was linked to Townsend Farms Organic Anti-Oxidant Blend berries sold at Costco stores, including those in Las Vegas.
The class action lawsuit was filed on behalf of Thomas Fiore and any other Nevada residents who were sickened by the berries. Also included in the lawsuit is anyone who had to be tested for the hepatitis A virus after eating the berries.
The lawsuit was filed in Clark County on Thursday.
