Natalia Steele, a partner in the Vorys Cleveland office and a member of the litigation group, was quoted in a Dayton Daily News story regarding a complaint filed against Dole related to a listeria outbreak.

The story states:

“The new lawsuit, filed in Clark County Common Pleas Court last week, says Ellen H. DiStefano, 79, became ill on Jan. 17 after eating a salad she bought in Belmont County that was packaged in Springfield. She was taken to a hospital, diagnosed with an infection caused by the listeria monocytogenes bacteria and died on Feb. 27.

‘Ellen died of complications from listeriosis just four months before her 60th wedding anniversary,’ said Natalia Steele, an attorney from Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease who represents DiStefano’s estate. ‘It is to seek justice for the DiStefanos, and to do what we can to see that this doesn’t happen again, that we filed this complaint.’”
