Listeriosis Class Action Settled for $27 Million

This is a settlement for the MapleLeaf Meats lawsuit.

A $27 million settlement has been reached between Maple Leaf Foods of Canada, and the plaintiffs in a class action suit.

The suit, brought against the food producer in 2008, stemmed from a nationwide listeria outbreak which killed at least 20 people. In each of the cases where someone died, their estate will receive $120,000 and the immediate family members will receive 'substantial amounts.'

Other claimants may be eligible for up to $125,000 each, depending on how severely their health was affected.

Anyone who consumed Maple Leaf meat products between January 1 and August 31, 2008 is eligible to make a claim.
