Church cleared in E. coli claim

The Nebraska meat processor that sued Salem Lutheran Church, Longville, Minn., after E. coli-tainted meatballs served at a smorgasbord in 2006 led to one member’s death and caused another to become seriously ill, dropped the claim.

Nebraska Beef settled in February with the two members’ families.

Fifteen other people also became ill after eating the meatballs (January 2008, "Churchscan").

The processor had questioned how the church cooks handled the meat, but Salem’s attorney countered that the congregation had done nothing wrong.
