She became sick in August 2006, after eating E. coli-tainted spinach packaged by Dole.

The nationwide outbreak killed three people, made 200 sick and cost the industry an estimated $80 million in lost sales.

Majeska spent time in a hospital bed on a feeding tube and ventilator after she came down with kidney problems.

Her doctor bills topped a $.5 million.

The amount of the settlement was not released.
