Cargill sues Greater Omaha Packing over 2007 recall
The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Omaha said Greater Omaha Packing violated the terms of its sales agreement with Cargill by providing bad meat. The lawsuit requested a jury trial and seeks unspecified monetary damages to cover the costs of the recall, lost profits, damage to reputation and attorneys' fees.
Greater Omaha issued a statement denying that it supplied the tainted beef. Company President Henry Davis said that all products shipped to Cargill tested negative for E. coli.
