Preview Clip

A four million dollar settlement has been reached in a class-action lawsuit against X-L Foods. The company operated a meat-packing plant in southern Alberta during the largest meat recall in Canadian history in 2012. Calgary lawyer Clint Docken says says money will be awarded to people who had to throw away meat during the recall, to provincial health care providers for the costs they incurred and those who became ill with E. coli. (Docken says the deal is still subject to final approval from the courts, which is expected this fall.)
