BJ’s Wholesale Club E. coli Outbreak

In 2002, several children became ill with E. coli O157:H7 infections which were traced to the consumption of ground beef sold at BJ’s Wholesale Club stores in New York and New Jersey. Remaining ground beef was recalled, but the children were so severely injured after suffering from Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) that their families sought to recover damages from BJ’s through the legal system.
