Chimicles & Tikellis is investigating a potential class action lawsuit on behalf of individuals who purchased sprouted clover from Evergreen Fresh Sprouts. It has been alleged that over 17 people have fallen ill with E. coli O121, which has been traced to contaminated raw clover spouts produced by Evergreen. It has been further alleged that FDA inspectors uncovered an employee using a pitchfork with visible corroded metal and rough welds to transfer mung bean sprouts into plastic tubs, and two employees using tennis rackets with scratches, chips, frayed plastic and sponge-type handles to scoop mung bean sprouts from a harvester. The same rackets were allegedly used the following day during alfalfa sprout harvesting.
