Woman sues after battling E. coli traced to spinach

E. coli in the spinach made her sick. Now, an 85 year old woman from Fond du Lac is suing the California growers and shippers responsible for the product.

Jane Majeska says she was hospitalized and put on a tube and ventilator after eating Dole spinach three years ago.

The E. coli outbreak killed three people, made 200 sick and cost the industry about $80 million in lost sales.

Majeska's suit asks for unspecified damages from Dole, Pick 'n' Save markets and two other companies.
