Hutterites sued over pork

An Alberta judge has certified a class-action lawsuit against Pine Haven Hutterite Colony and The Meat Shop of Pine Haven over complaints about food poisoning in 2018.

About 45 people are listed as plaintiffs in the lawsuit, which is asking for compensation for physical injury, mental anguish, medical expenses and lost wages.

One person died.

Legal measures are also underway against a local restaurant that allegedly served the tainted meat to some of the plaintiffs. The restaurant has closed.
