Couple Sues Over Tainted Spinach

After Jeffrey and Margit Merkey's two-year-old son Alexej consumed spinach tainted with E. Coli bacteria, he became so ill that he needed emergency surgery.

On Oct. 2 the family filed suit against San Juan Bautista, Calif.-based Natural Selection Foods, the company responsible for packaging the tainted spinach that led to a nationwide recall of the product. The couple also filed suit against Delta Air Lines for allegedly serving spinach to passengers during the recall.
