Woman settles lawsuit regarding California spinach
New Richmond Wisconsin 127 South Knowles Avenue 54017

After three years a Fond du Lac woman has settled her lawsuit against California growers and shippers of spinach.

Jane Majeska is 85 years old.

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.
