Preview Clip

A settlement has been reached in a class-action lawsuit filed over an E. coli outbreak and the largest meat recall in Canadian history. The lawsuit is against X-L Foods, which operated a meat-packing plant in southern Alberta during the tainted beef recall in 2012. Calgary lawyer Clint Docken says the four-million-dollar agreement is subject to court approval this fall. (Docken says there will be compensation for those who became ill, provincial health-care providers who cared for them and for people who were forced to throw away meat during the recall.)
