Madison Sedbrook, a six-year old Colorado girl, was just like every other child at that age: full of happiness, life and energy. But after consuming some raw Nestle cookie dough with her older sister, her demeanor changed drastically as she became pale, lethargic and began vomiting every 30 minutes.
Madison was on the verge of kidney failure when doctor’s determined E. Coli bacteria was the cause of her bloody diarrhea and vomiting. The culprit of her personal injury was Nestle cookie dough which was pulled off the shelves due to a products liability that caused the personal injury of over 70 Americans.
Our products liability attorneys believe companies who are responsible for goods that are eaten by consumers should make sure their products do not cause personal injury or wrongful death. If Nestle’s cookie dough is the root of the E. coli outbreak, then the company should be responsible for any personal injury it caused. Remember, all of this comes after Nestle was not prepared to cooperate with the Food and Drug Administration over the possible product liability.
Madison’s family is seeking damages to cover an expected $50,000 to $100,000 in medical bills for Madison’s stay at Sky Ridge Medical Center and Children’s Hospital.
The company is focused on completing the recall of Nestle Toll House cookie dough. Nestle announced the recall during a U.S. Food and Drug Administration investigation “because the health and safety of our customers is so important,” the company.
Children’s injuries happen every day because of a wide range of reasons. The worst injuries are the ones that could have been prevented and if Nestle had carefully inspected their cookie dough for safety Madison would not have suffered a personal injury and gone through a traumatic experience at such a young age.
As products liability attorneys, we believe when those companies fail to do what they are responsible for in providing food that is safe to eat, hiring an experienced products liability attorney will help clients get a settlement to help pay for medical bill costs as well as pain and suffering.
