How many of you have used Scott’s Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for Flowers and Vegetables?
My client did, and in a lawsuit brought in federal court he is alleging he contracted Legionnaires’ disease from using the product. The evidence that has been provided so far shows that the same type of Legionella bacteria found in the bag he used was also found in his body while in the hospital.
Other evidence shows that Legionnaires’ disease has been associated with manufactured soils in the United States and overseas. Yet no warnings about the dangers associated with Legionnaires’ disease existed on the bag of soil my client used. My client spent a month in the hospital and another month in a rehab home recovering due to his illness with Legionnaires’ disease. The case is proceeding to trial in 2018.
Unfortunately, many cases of Legionnaires’ disease are reported as “sporadic,” or caused by an unknown source of Legionella bacteria. Some of these cases may be caused from using manufactured soil products.
If you believe you or someone you know has been diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease after using manufactured soil products such as those produced by Scott’s Miracle-Gro, Contact us to see what we can do to help.
