$5,000 donated by Marler Clark for local food safety
E. coli O157:H7-contaminated strawberries sold at roadside stands and farmers markets. Twelve females and four males, ranging in age from 4 to 85, are part of the outbreak. $5,000 donated by the Seattle-based food safety law firm Marler Clark to the Food Alliance of Portland. The Food Alliance provides complete third-party certification in agriculture and the food industry for social and environmental responsibility. Bill Marler wants the donation to be used for promoting small agriculture food safety. After a number of sprouts-related outbreaks and recalls, Marler Clark donated $10, 000 to lessen the probable risks involved in sprout production, earlier this year.
