Ron Simon & Associates Files Caramel Apple Listeria Lawsuit

Ron Simon & Associates, along with Gomez Trial Attorneys, filed a lawsuit stemming from a multi-state listeria outbreak linked to consumption of contaminated caramel apples. The lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court of Sacramento County, California on behalf of Darlene Vouri and her husband Francis Vouri against apple supplier Bidart Brothers Apple Packing Co. of Shafter, California, caramel apple manufacturer Happy Apple Company Inc. of Union, Missouri, and national retailer Wal-Mart. The Vouris purchased the caramel apples on October 14, 2014 from the Wal⠓Mart located at 5454 Crossings Drive in Rocklin, CA. Darlene consumed them shortly thereafter. Within a few days, she began to experience a headache, neck pain, fatigue, chills, and muscle aches and weakness. She presented to her physician on a number of occasions over the next two weeks as her condition deteriorated. But on November 8th, Darlene collapsed and was rushed to Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital. On November 9, after a second collapse, the attending physicians admitted her and ran a battery of tests while treating her symptoms. Her physicians began to suspect aseptic meningitis and ordered a spinal tap which revealed spinal meningitis of bacterial etiology. Testing revealed the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes, compelling her doctors to place her in an isolation room for quarantine. Infectious disease was consulted. Doctors placed Darlene on an aggressive regimen of antibiotics and monitored her around the clock. At the end of a lengthy quarantine period, hospital staff transferred Darlene to Kindred Transitional Care and Rehabilitation, where she continued to receive around-the-clock medical treatment. Finally, on December 10th, after a month of hospitalization and treatment, she returned home. Since that time, she has continued to receive in-home nursing. She is unable to ambulate without significant assistance or to perform regular daily tasks. On January 10, 2015, Darlene collapsed for a third time. She remains in guarded condition. Darlene Vouri is one of at least 32 victims in 11 states who contracted Listeria monocytogenes after consuming caramel apples. The victims are located in Arizona, California, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, Nevada, North Carolina, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin.
